Sunday Morning Knit Wit ~ Ribbed Cable Stitch

For those of you following my blog,  you know that cable work is my favorite.  For those who are new, you just have to check out this ribbed cable stitch that I found.

It is worked without using a cable needle and it is an amazing quick knit!  I've only tried it with 2 stitch ribbing, but will try some modifications soon.

The cable working pattern goes like this:

K2, P2, *  (as many repeats as you like)
P2, K2
K2 tog without taking them off the left needle, then K 1st stich of the 2 on the needle and slip off both, P2
P2, K2

Repeat these 4 rows

I used this stitch to knit this super soft scarf in 100% alpaca wool with 6 cable rows surrounded by seed stitch boarders. 

I hope you will give it a try.

As the holidays are approaching soon, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and thank those who have supported me through out the year in 2010.  I appreciate every single comment and click on my little blog so very much! 

Merry Christmas ♪ ♪ ♫ ♫ ♪ ♪

Wow! I really like this pattern. I think it looks feminine, and I'll have to try this in....maybe pink?
