A new stitch pattern…

Hi there!

It’s really snowing and blowing here today so it’s a great day to knit! Well, really every day is a great day to knit, LOL, but more so when the weather is yucky!!

In my last post, I mentioned I wanted to knit some new cushion covers for the throw cushions in my bedroom and wanted something that had a lot of texture.  So, I pulled out my knitting books and found this super easy mock cable stitch!!

For this stitch pattern, I needed to learn a couple of things I didn’t know – “yo” (yarn over needle) and “psso” (pass slipped stitch over).  You may have already come across these techniques in other knitting patterns, but I never had.  So, I googled them and found some really good YouTube videos that showed me how to do them.

I really like this stitch pattern, so below I have written it out so you can try it too!

Mock Cable

Cast on a multiple of 4 plus 2.

Row 1 (WS): K2, *p2, k2, rep from * across row
Row 2: P2, *k1, yo, k1, p2, rep from * across row
Row 3: K2, *p3, k2, rep from * across row
Row 4: P2, *sl 1, k2, psso both k sts, p2, rep from * across row

Repeat rows 1-4 for pattern.

Happy knitting!
