Medallion Seed Stitch Cable






The Medallion Seed Stitch Cable is worked on a panel of 13 stitches with a background of reverse stockinette over 16 rows. The cables have a lovely stockinette that frame a seed stich insert. It creates a dense fabric that would be a lovely stitch pattern to use for a sweater, hat, scarf or a blanket.


There is a chart below for reference

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


Stitches and abbreviations used

C6B: Cable 6 Back - slip 3 sts from left hand needle to cable needle, hold to back, knit 3 from left hand needle, knit 3 from cable needle

C6F: Cable 6 Front - slip 3 sts from left hand needle to cable needle, hold to front, knit 3 from left hand needle, knit 3 from cable needle

K: Knit

P: Purl

Notes:

  • I find it easier to insert stitch markers between panels, so as not to get confused to where the background of reverse stockinette section is

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