I love this 💕 especially in purple!!
Gauge: 4.5-5 stitches/in in stockinetteFinished Size: about 4.5” x 21”
– 1 skein of Frog Tree Merino Worsted, or about 130yds of worsted weight yarn
– US #8 (5mm) needles
– three 1 1/8” or 1 1/2” buttons
– tapestry needle
– matching thread (optional)
Yarn Note: It is important to use a yarn that you can block because the cables will cause it to curl–100%
acrylic is *not* recommended.
CO 32 stitches.
Set up row: p2, (k4, p4) 3 times, k4, p2
Using the chart below, knit the Celtic cable pattern until you have knit at least 20” from the cast on row,
ending with a WS row.
Continue in 1×1 ribbing (K1, P1 across row) for 4 rows.
Row 1: K1, p1, k1, p1, k1, BO 4, (k1, p1, k1, p1, BO 4) 2 times, k1, p1, k1, p1
Row 2: (k1, p1) twice, k1, CO 4, (p1, k1) twice, p1, CO 4, (k1, p1) twice, k1, CO 4, (p1, k1) twice, p1
Continue in ribbing for 2 rows. BO all stitches in pattern. Weave in all ends.
I would recommend spray blocking—pin the garment to a surface such as a towel and spray it with water
until it’s very damp, especially on the edges. Let it dry completely before unpinning.
Sew on buttons using leftover yarn or matching thread.
Note: When you read the chart, read all odd rows from right to left, and all even rows from left to right.
You will be slipping one stitch at the beginning of each row.
