Knit with Aabhar – Wishbone & Seed Cable Stitch

Pattern Description


Wishbone & Seed Cable Stitch knitting pattern combines cable stitches and seed stitches. Because of how the cables are shaped, it is named ‘Wishbone,’ where the interior is filled with ‘Seed’ stitches appearing like pomegranates. Like the Small Double Cable stitch, the twining chains look like wishbones stringed on a thread.

Wishbone & Seed Cable stitch is a perfect knitting pattern to feature prominently in sweaters and pullovers. It also looks great intermixed with other cable stitches like Textured Cable Stitch. You can make a single panel of the pattern in the front of the wearable or multiple panel repeats to create a highly textured fabric.
