Project Instructions

Step: 1

Gauge
8 sts = 4-inches [10cm] over St st (k on RS, p on WS).
Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4-inch [10cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.


Step: 2

Instructions
If you know how to knit and purl, you can make this beautiful throw. Just work the stitches carefully for each row, working the cable according to the directions in the cable stitch explanations. Basically, a cable is nothing more than moving stitches so that they change places with other stitches. To move stitches, just slip the indicated number of stitches off your left needle and onto a cable needle. Allow the cable needle to hang from your knitting with the stitches on it while you work stitches from your left needle. Then, following the specific row directions, work the stitches from the cable needle.


Step: 3

Stitch Explanation
6/6 RC (right cross of 6 sts over 6 sts). Slip next 6 sts to a cable needle and leave at the back of your work, k 6 sts from your left needle, then k the 6 sts from cable needle.
6/6 LC (left cross of 6 sts over 6 sts). Slip next 6 sts to a cable needle and leave at the front of your work.
