Little Plait Cable

Sample knit with Lighthouse Waves on US 10-1/2 needles
This is a super simple, super quick cable stitch.  It's also easy to remember, because it is only four rows!

Panel of 10 stitches

Rows 1 and 3: (WS) K2, P6, K2
Row 2: P2, Sl 2 to cable or DPN and hold in front, K2 from left needle, K2 from cable or DPN, K2, P2
Row 4: P2, K2, Sl 2 to cable or DPN and hold in back, K2 from left needle, K2 from cable or DPN, P2

Repeat these four rows for pattern.

Here is the video.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!

I love it! I just don't know where I could use it...

I'm just learning to knit and your clear instructions make this easy for me to feel I can do it. And, I can certainly think of many ways to use it!

Hi! I'd like to make a small throw with repeated panels. Is this a multiple of 10 stitch repeat or are there plus stitches when repeating this pattern? I'm new to stitch patterns and am not sure how to proceed when making multiple cables. Thank you!

@Linda Ayala it is a ten stitch panel, so for every ten stitches you cast on, you will have one cable.
