Acorn Cable

Sample above was knit with lighthouse Waves yarn on US Size 10 needles

The picture above is of the Autumn Acorn Cowl, which is available for purchase on Craftsy

This stitch pattern was requested by one of my YouTube friends.  This is a long one, so grab a cup of tea, and sit back!

This stitch pattern is worked on a multiple of 10 plus 2 (you will need at least 22 stitches to work the pattern).  To start, you will knit Rows 1-13, and then only repeat from Row 2 for the pattern

Notes and Abbreviations:


When working the cables, you can knit the stitches directly from the cable or double
pointed needle, or slip the stitches back to the left needle and knit from the needle.

Sl – slip stitch
K – knit
P- purl
BC – Back Cross – slip the next two stitches onto cable or double pointed needle, hold in
back of work. Knit two from left needle, then purl two from cable needle
FC – Front Cross – slip the next two stitches onto cable or double pointed needle, hold in
front of work. Purl two from left needle, then knit two from cable needle
