It's going to depend on the weight yarn you use and the size needles

Probably about 55-60sts but you're going to have to try it out to see exactly what gauge you get. Worsted weight is about 4.5-5sts/inch but your gauge will depend on your tension and how much the cable pulls in the sts. Try out a swatch with the cable pattern and see what you get.
