Textured Cable Stitch Pattern is a beautiful combination of cables and seed stitch. The seeded cable pattern might look difficult, but all you need to remember is to keep your knits and purls proper, and voila, you’ll have a great-looking pattern in your hand. As someone familiar with cable knitting, you won’t find the pattern too difficult to follow!
Unlike most other cable patterns, Textured Cable Stitch has one cable of stockinette stitches and one cable of seed stitches twisting together. The seed stitch is also known as moss stitch in British knitting pattern terminology.
The Textured Cable Stitch Pattern looks great as a center design panel on a pullover or cardigan. It’s a good design option for knitting socks or leg warmers.
