Learn to knit the Lattice Cable Dishcloth

Updated: Jan 14


I designed this pattern for part 6 of the "Learn to Knit" series. It‘s a perfect pattern for the ambitious beginner that wants to try their hand at cabling. It uses only Knit and Purl with cabling. Below you will find the written directions, a chart and video tutorial.

Difficulty level:

Ambitious Beginner - as long as your comfortable with knit & purl, you should have no problems catching on. If you haven't cabled before, I do recommend trying on a small swatch to get a feel for it prior to starting a project; or, you can be like me and dive on in anyways!


Measures:

9” x 9” / Gauge not important

Here's a pin for you :)

Stitches used:

Knit (k), Purl (p) Back Cross (BC): Slip 1 st to CN and hold at back, k2 from left needle, p1 from CN Front Purl Cross (FPC): Slip 2 sts to CN and hold at front, p1 from left needle, k2 from CN C4B: Slip 2 sts to CN and hold at back, k2 from left needle, k2 from CN C4F: Slip 2 sts to CN and hold at front, k2 from left needle, k2 from CN


Materials Needed:

Hobbii, Rainbow 8/8 (100% Cotton, DK 3 weight) “3 Nude” 60 yards

Size 5 (3.75 mm) Knitting Needles

Cable Needle (cn) or 1 double pointed needle (dpn)

2 stitch markers recommended / 4 stitch markers is optimal

Tapestry needle and scissors


Note: Pattern length can be adjusted by continuing to do more repeats. End with either row 10 or row 20 when you come to desired length. To adjust width, calculate the number of stitches in increments of 12 + 10.
