My latest project. I've been testing out different knitting patterns. This one is called Jumbo Cable. It's pattern is simple but you need patience. It goes like this:
26 stitches. First 5 and Last 5 make border.
RW 1,5,7,9,11,13,15: Knit
RW 2 (and all even number rows): Knit first 5, Purl, knit last 5
RW 3: Knit first 5, transfer 8 st to cable needle in the front, knit next 8 st, place st back on reg needle from cable needle and knit 8 st , knit last 5
RW 16: Purl
Repeat all Rows til desired length.
In case you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about here is a good tutorial I found on YouTube.
It's a lot of work but so beautiful.
Good Luck =)

I like to knit and crochet but right now I'm just finding my voice in that world. Hopefully I can one day be up to par with amazing people like Shauna Richardson. Check out her work in this post on DesignBoom blog I stumbled on to.
