Stitchy Saturday Basket Cable Stitch

Hello Friends, 

I hope you are doing well. I have been busy today working on this lovely stitch. I love the look of this stitch and its weaved appearance is so nice to look at. I enjoyed knitting the stitch, it was fun and easy to knit up and looks amazing. I hope that you will give it a try! 

 Basket Cable Stitch 

(when it says C6B/F in the pattern, put 3 stitches on a double pointed needle or on a cable stitch holder and put it either in the front (F) or back (B) of the other stitches.

Row 2 K to end

What I thought: 
I really enjoyed knitting this stitch pattern. The pattern was easy to learn and follow. I think that this pattern kept me interested because it is repetitive, but the pattern changes when moving stitches to either the front or back. I really enjoyed this stitch and will try to incorporate it into my knitting projects.

Knitter level: 
Beginner: The stitch is easy to follow and the repetition is easy to learn after a few pattern repeats.

  1. What will you do with all your sampler pieces when you've finished? Looks good, Cathy x

    1. Hi Cathy, when I started making stitches I thought I would make a blanket with all of the squares of stitches I made. Now I have just kept them as reminders of the stitches and they will inspire me one day to use them in a pattern when I am in the project planning process. I might do something with them one day, for now they are just pieces of inspiration. Thank you for visiting! :) x
