Happy 4th of July to all my American readers!
Welcome to my sixth cable pattern post in my cable pattern series. This week’s cable pattern is the six strand braided cable pattern. This is my favorite of the “simple” cables. This pattern I picked up from a picture that I saw, and I figured out and wrote out the pattern just from that picture.
I have used this pattern for several scarves, adding a total of six stitches to the pattern, so that each side would have an edging of 3 garter stitch rows at each end, and three stitches on each side that I used the garter stitch for, just to give it a solid edging, and to help it not to roll.
It looked more complicated than it is, you just cable on two of the eight rows, and it did not take me long to get the hang of what was going on.
I also make up size spacings for use in sweaters. I have yet to try this in a sweater, but after having made three scarves with this pattern, it should be hard. If you try this pattern, let me know if you like it.
For those of you who have followed my cable pattern series, I hope you have enjoyed it, and found some patterns that you like!
