Greenie Cables

Greenie Cables

Needles: US 6 circs and dpns
Yarn: worsted weight (I used Cascade Sierra Quattro)

I improvised this pattern to use up some yarn. Its a good stash buster.

Cast on 92 stitches, join in round being careful not to twist. Place marker for beginning of round.

C2F = two stitches to cable needle, hold in front, knit 2 then knit two from cable needle.

Round 1: K4, P2, K2, P2 to end.
Round 2: K4, P2, K2, P2 to end.
Round 3: K4, P2, K2, P2 to end.
Round 4: K4, P2, K2, P2 to end.
Round 5: K4, P2, K2, P2 to end.
Round 6: C2F, P2, K2, P2 to end.

Knit in pattern for 2 or 3 repeats depending upon how long you want to. (I did 3 repeats). When you’re satisfied with the length of the cable pattern, start knitting stockinette for as long as you wish. (I did 8 rounds.)

Start decreases:
K8, k2tog
K7, k2tog
K6, k2tog,
K5, k2tog
K4, k2tog
K3, k2tog
K2, k2tog
K1, k2tog
K2tog, k2tog

Break yarn and pull through remaining stitches and weave in ends.

If you find any errors, let me know ASAP! Or even if you have suggestions to improve this design.

If you enjoy this pattern, feel free to share with friends, and sell what you make, but please don’t claim as your own.
