RIBBING WITH MOCK CABLE

STITCH OF THE MONTH - October 2014
Ribbing with Mock Cable is a wide rib pattern that features a slanted mock ribbing pattern in vertical columns. The ribbing creates elasticity through the width of the fabric and the mock cable creates slanted mock cables that are knit by crossing 2 stitches rather than using a cable needle to move the 1 stitch to the back. 

It can be used on edgings such as cuffs and hems, or in a pattern where shaping is necessary such as at the waist.
