I couldn't find anything that specifically for a set of 52 stiches, but you might be able to easily modify this pattern here
. It calls for 24 stiches, so you could double the pattern and add an extra 2 knit stiches at the beginning and end. Not sure if that helps because you have to modify it!
You can also work with the Irish Hiking Scarf
pattern. I haven't made this yet (it is on my list) but from what I understand it is a good first project. To make it 52 stiches you can just add on 5 knit stiches on both sides.
If these don't work you may want to see if you can find a book of stiches at your library like this one
it might have some basic cable patterns that you could use.
I hope this helps!
Good Luck -
