Are you ready for Square #6?

Hi all you square people out there - and anyone else who secretly wishes they were square….

For our class this coming Saturday we will be doing a lattice style cable pattern. This is a great little project for those who want to move beyond basic cabling. Working this kind of cable pattern will help you understand how stitches move and interact with each other.

If you have a chance to get started before class, please cast on 48 stitches and work 6 rows in garter stitch (all knit rows). On the last row, place markers 3 stitches in from each edge. (Lori: the pattern is a multiple of 8, so I suggest you cast on 40.)

For those of you who are on Ravelyr, go ahead and use this link to see a sample of another lattice cable pattern. We are not making this pattern, but ours will be similar. Similar pattern

Please don’t forget to bring your cable needles!

I look forward to getting together on Saturday (11:30 as usual). Enjoy the rest of your week.
