Baby Cable & Garter Ridges - How to knit

The Baby Cable & Garter Ridge is a simple cable stitch that creates an interesting pattern with loads of texture. It's worked in multiples of 25 stitches and uses a Cable 4 Front stitch to add interest. It creates a lovely dense fabric that would be a great stitch pattern to use for a sweater, hat, scarf or a blanket.

There is a chart below for reference, as well as a video link to help you.

Materials needed (listed below is what I used to create the sample of the stitch pattern)

Stitches and abbreviations used

K: Knit

P: Purl

  • To help minimize the gap of the cable, I give a light tug on the stitch afterward to close it up a bit


  • Row 1 (RS): *P9, k4, p12; rep * to end

  • Row 2 (WS): *[P3, k1] 3x, p4, k1, [p3, k1] 2x; rep * to end

  • Row 3: *[P1, k3] 2x, p1, c4f, [p1, k3] 3x; rep * to end

  • Row 4: As row 2

Repeat rows 1-4 to desired length.
