16 Stitch Cable


Sample knit with worsted weight yarn on US 6 needles

This cable is worked over 16 stitches.  For my sample, I added extra stitches for garter stitch edges and a reverse stockinette stitch background.  The instructions below are for the 16 stitches used in the cable only.  If you're interested in the cable needle set I use in the video, you can follow this amazon affiliate link: Brittany Cable Needles

CN = cable needle

LN = left needle

Row 1 (rs): knit

Row 2: purl

Row 3: slip 4 sts to CN and hold in back; k4 from LN, then k4 from CN; slip 4 sts to CN and hold in front; k4 from LN, then k4 from CN

Row 4: purl

Row 5: knit

Row 6: purl

Row 7: knit

Row 8: purl

Repeat these 8 rows for the cable pattern.
