Stitch of the Month: Six Strand Cable

Learn how to knit the bold Six Strand Cable
This month I would like to share a stitch called the Six Strand Cable. It is a little more intricate than some of the others you have seen here, but a new year is a great time to learn new things!

The cable is worked over 15 stitches and 30 rows on a background of reverse stockinette stitch.

Up Close

The Six Strand Cable may feel a little awkward as you first start working it because most of us aren't used to working into the back of stitches, but the result is a show stopper.
