Welcome to the fifth cable pattern post, in my cable pattern series. This week’s cable pattern is the double S cable. This pattern is based off the single s cable pattern that I wrote about in last week’s post. what I did was that I took the basic s cable and then mirrored it for the second one. So one is always doing the opposite of what the other is doing. It looks pretty cool.
I have used this pattern in making one of my fishermen’s wool scarves. I like that it adds something to the otherwise boring but functional garment, yet is still casual enough for everyday (during the cold season) wear.
I enjoy trying new patterns, and seeing how projects turn out. If you are anything like me, simple patterns that look nice are what I spend hours on Pinterest, ravelry, knitty and other sites looking for. The patterns that I use on a regular basis were hard finds, and I did not come by them easily. Since I found them, I want to share what I found and maybe help some of you who haven’t been knitting as long find some great knitting patterns.
