Triple Triple Cable

Designing is so hard! I’m sorry I open this post with a complain. I restarted so many times. Then once it was completed, I wasn’t so satisfy with the sprinkle pink with the natural. I was hoping the natural would be more white.

I started off the front with the same number of stitches as the back. I didn’t factor in that the cable would shrink the front substantially. So I added two 10 stitches on top and bottom of the front piece.

You can see where I sew the pieces together.

BUT! I do love knitting this large woven cable. It’s so easy but looks so interesting (to me anyway).

Size: small (16″ wide, 21″ long)

Yarn: We Are Knitters Cotton (Sprinkle Pink 4 skeins and Natural 1 skein)

Needles Size: US 6/4mm

This sweater is assembled vertically. Before knitting [k1p1] rib for the bottom, pick up stitches on the long side.

The back. It looks like strawberry shortcake matrix.

Back: Cast on 85 st, knit 100 rows with reverse stockinette stitch, cast off.

Once complete the 100 rows, pick up stitches on one of the long sides and knit 5 rows of k1, p1 rib. This will be the bottom of the back. Cast off all st.

Frontcast on 104 st

With even rows: knit all purl stitches of previous odd number rows, and purl all knit stitches of previous odd number rows. Odd rows being the right side.

C8F (cable 8 front): Slip next 4 sts onto cable needle and hold at front of work, knit next 4 sts from left-hand needle, then return 4 sts to left-hand needle and knit them.
