Basic Cable Stitch

What is a Basic Cable Stitch?

Basic Cable Stitch is a knitting stitch pattern that creates a raised, interlocking cable design resembling twisted or braided ropes. It involves crossing stitches over each other to create the cable effect. Basic cable stitches are often used in knitting projects such as sweaters, scarves, or blankets to add texture and visual interest to the fabric. Cable knitting requires working with multiple stitches and a cable needle or special techniques to manipulate the stitch order.
