Hey everyone! Long time no see!
I've knit a neat little cabled wristband for myself out of some nice merino wool I had laying around. I knew I wanted a cable on it, and instead of finding a pattern, I decided to wing it. (Although, I have no doubt there is a similar or identical pattern out there somewhere, it's quite basic.)
Here it is:
And here's the pattern. It's very very easy, anyone can do it! I especially suggest it if you are new to cables, it's a fun, easy, small project to learn them on.
CO 18 sts.
Row 1 (WS): k1, p1, k1, k3, p6, k3, k1 p1, k1.
Row 2 (RS): k1, p1, k1, p3, k6, p3, k1, p1, k1.
Rep Row 1.
Rep Row 2.
Rep Row 1. (5 rows).
Row 6: k1, p1, k1, p3, c6f, p3, k1, p1, k1
Rep pattern until piece meas approx. 7.5" long. Or, if you're like me, wing it; while the stitiches are still on the needle, see if the band will stretch around your wrist. You can try and make your cable line up when you stitch it together. I didn't worry about it too much.
Sew up your side seams and weave in your ends.
That's it! Any questions or comments, please post! This is my first "original" *laugh* pattern, so I'm pretty proud.
