In today’s tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit the Baby Eyelet Cables stitch pattern, without using a cable needle.
An adorable stitch, perfect for knitting clothes and accessories for babes and babies, as well as women’s hats, sweaters or tops.
Its eye-catching design is flattering and timeless!
The Baby Eyelet Cables combines columns of knitting and purling, along with little lace cables.
It’s a four-row repeat pattern, easy to knit and quick to memorize (pretty intuitive).
The first row is the most important…it may appear complicated the first time you try, persevere as the second and third times the charm, it just gets easier 😉
The next 3 rows are just like a 3×3 ribbing (knit 3, purl 3, and viceversa).
Not too fine, not too thick, just the right amount of brightness, a natural feel compared to other mercerized fibers, it comes in a wonderful range of colors, grab some and get knitting.
I love them because they are bamboo, light and strong, yet short enough to knit with anywhere, and for all you size queens this set has all possible sizes!
These are my needles for knitting swatches, socks, and hats, especially practical if you are not a fan of the circular needles and the “Magic Loop” technique 😉
Without further ado, grab your yarn and needles, and let’s knit together!
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
WS: Wrong side of the work
yo: Yarn over (bring the yarn forward)
sl: Slip stitch
RH: Right hand
LH: Left hand
BO: Bind off
The odds row form the right side of the work.
Always slip stitches as if to purl (purl wise).
Baby Eyelets Cables knitting stitch pattern
CO multiples of 6 + 3; i.e.: 6 * 3 = 18 + 3 = 21 st.
1º row (RS): *P3, sl 3 st onto the RH needle, pass the 1º st (from right to left), over the other 2 st, sl those 2 st back onto the LH needle, K1, yo, K1*. Repeat from * to *, to last 3 st, P3.
2º and 4º rows: *K3, P3*. Repeat from * to *, to last 3 st, K3.
3º row: *P3, K3*. Repeat from * to *, to last 3 st, P3.
These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO working each stitch as it presents, after a row 1 (WS).
