Mini Cables knitting pattern

Free knitting pattern: Mini Cables

For stand-out cushions, blankets and throws, we've got just the stitch for you!

8th October 2017

These mini little cables are worked using an uneven cabling method. Usually, cables are worked by slipping two or so stitches onto a cable needle and then working the next two stitches from the lefthand needle, before working those two stitches from the cable needle. In this case, instead of splitting the stitches evenly into two and two, it's three and one!

Plus, we've made it even easier for you to share your favourite stitch patterns with just the click of a mouse - try pinning this pattern or saving it to your own library.
