I need something to keep jeans inside my boots and I've got enough yarn in this dye lot, I think it will be a perfect match. I did a 4X2 rib for about an inch and a half and switched to a needle two sizes larger for the cabling. This is the stitch pattern:
Close Woven Basket Lattice
I finally settled on the Magic Loop Method knitting with my Addi Turbos; every other row is cables, so I am using this technique, Crossing Cables without a Cable Needle
The yarn I'm using is this:
Patons Classic Merino Wool in a Dark Olive
The color in the picture seems washed out, going to need to ask DH.....again.....about camera settings.
Thanks for looking
ETA - I was inspired by a 'recipe' on ravelry.com, the site was down so I did not include the link. Although this project was knit in the round, the cable pattern did not continue around, which prompted me to find a similar stitch pattern and work it out to have the cables continuous without a break.
