View Full Version : Huge Cable Pattern
09-01-2007, 02:46 PM
I want to make a cable scarf with one HUGE cable down the middle and I cannot find a large cable pattern to save my life. I tried to tweak the cable patterns from books I have lying around, but it doesn't work. Does anyone know of a cable that has like 15+ stitches in it?
Something like this link, but the bigger the better:

Could you adapt the cable pattern in this poncho?

You probably need to look for a 3 strand braided cable pattern... 5, 5, 5

How big do you want it?
A Saxon braid is always nice (26 stitches) - http://woollypomelos.blogspot.com/2006/07/poncho-pics-and-pattern.html
or from the chart at http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTsamus.html
Or multi-cables (37 stitches) -
Or all-over "woven" cables - http://www.kidsknits.com/woven_headband.htm
or even "random" cables - http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTchaos.html
Or a Hartshorn cable http://www.knittingfool.com/pages/stCatalog2.cfm?StitchID=1705&name=Hartshorn%20Cable&numofst=28&stplus=0&rows=24&rplus=0&sym=0
or socks (with picture of the pattern at http://bp1.blogger.com/_KFMuukBGFUs/Rb-gDAEkfAI/AAAAAAAAAAs/yFU2eI4H4pY/s1600-h/rockvante.jpg)
Actually, I've always had a fondness for the Saxon braid, which has the benefit of looking far more intricate than it is to knit!
