Does anyone know of a free place to find just cable patterns? I'm looking for a cable to stick on a hat I'm making and I can't seem to figure out how to look this up. Ideally, I'm looking for any cable that's worked with nine stitches (the cable part itself, excluding the background). Since I've only done the basic cables with one cross, I'm not sure how I'd go about making this up. Any help is appreciated!

This site (http://www.knittingfool.com/pages/StCatalog.cfm?alpha=A) has LOADS of stitch patterns and also lists which ones are cables and also how many stitches are used. (The page I linked is just the 'A' section, see the left sidebar for the rest)

And here's another one (http://www.knittingwisdom.com/stitches/stitch-gallery.htm) that you might have some luck with.

Oh, that first site is exactly what I was hoping for! Thanks!

A lot of books have patterns, too. My Knitter's Bible has quite a few.
