I’ve designed a Christmas Stocking using this cable knit heart motif which I love.
If you’re new to cable knitting, please don’t be put off. It is quite straightforward to do, once you get going and most satisfying to see the finished results. I’m very pleased with how it’s turned out and I think it’ll look great as part of anyones Christmas decorations.
Previously it was released as a knit-a-long so it is presented here in 3 parts as it was originally.
Some people took part in the knit-a-long who had never tried cable knitting before and enjoyed it as an introduction to the technique.
The pattern is written out line by line. I have not included any charts for this knit.
I have also made some kits which can be purchased now (see links below)
