Pattern: Fishbone Braid

For the next few weeks I will post the pattern for various knit samples on my blog. On Instagram all my posts can be found with the hashtag #knitsamplesunday.

Fishbone Braid

The first pattern I would like to introduce is the Fishbone Braid cable knit. A relatively easy and very nice cable. It looks beautiful on all knitting pieces such as hats, scarfs, sweaters and many more.

The cable itself is knitted with 13 stitches. The pattern for the sample includes 10 additional stitches on each side.

  • Material: You can use any kind of wool to knit the sample, I suggest to use a non-fuzzy but elastic wool such as merino wool. For my sample I used 100% pure merino wool (extra fine) and 3mm needles.
  • How To: Knit sample according to pattern. Constantly repeat rows 4-9
