Stitch of the Month - March 2015
These lovely eyelet mock cables are created without the use of a cable needle. The 'cables' are made by passing a slipped stitch over two stitches against a reverse stockinette stitch background. A yarn over is worked in the following row creating an eyelet in the center of the cable. 

The eyelet mock cables can be worked over many stitches creating continuous rows of cables (as photographed) which will create a ribbing effect that will give elasticity through the width of the fabric. The cables can also be worked as a design feature working a single cable pattern.
