Coral knitted fabric with a cable pattern followed by a text area that says "Learn how to knit: Yarnover Cable Stitch Pattern, learnknittingonline.com" and a back side of the coral knitted fabric with a cable pattern This Yarnover Cable Stitch Pattern is a really delightful yarnover pattern. Interestingly, it gives the effect of a cable without you actually having to make any cables.

In fact, each “cable” twist has an eyelet in the center. Once the pattern is repeated, you create a delightful rib effect.

In order to create this beautiful stitch pattern, you will have to slip stitches. If you are not familiar with slipping stitches, we have a great tutorial. You can find this tutorial here: Slipping Stitches Knitwise or Purlwise.

You should note that when slipping stitches for this pattern, you should keep the yarn in the back.

In addition, you should also be aware that the number of stitches does not remain the same on every row. This is because of the yarnovers you are making.

If you are not familiar with yarnovers, we have a tutorial that you might find useful. The tutorial can be found here: Open Yarnover Increase.

Furthermore, the stitch pattern is just knitted over 4 rows which makes it very easy to memorize.

This free knit stitch pattern is ideal for Level 3 - Easy Level Knitters
