How to knit the Knotted Cable Stitch

The Knotted cable stitch is such a fun stitch. It's worked with a background of reverse stockinette with the cable working over 6 stitches. The knot in the middle of the cable is created by doing a Cross 6 or C6 stitch, then the cable itself is worked as a 2x2 ribbing. This stitch pattern works in multiples of 6 over a 10 row repeat.

Below there is a video tutorial and a chart for you, as well.
