Bias Ca­ble Stole

The Knitter - - Bias Cable Stole - Leila Raabe

DI­AG­O­NAL LACE mesh al­ter­nat­ing be­tween ver­ti­cal ca­bled rib mo­tifs that are worked on the bias cre­ate an in­ter­est­ing re­sult in the di­rec­tion of the fab­ric. Knit­ted in a chunky-weight yarn, this stole is light­weight, warm, and quick to work up, with a sim­ple rhythm that is eas­ily mem­o­rised after the first few re­peats. Work­ing the two-stitch ca­bles with­out a ca­ble nee­dle makes it fly off the nee­dles even faster.

STOLE

Us­ing 6.5mm nee­dles and the ca­ble cast-on method, cast on 65 sts.
