Fourth Cable Swatch

Another swatch of three slightly-more-complex cables. These too were from Lesley Stanfield’s The New Knitting Stitch Library. See previous post (Third Cable Swatch) for my notes on the link for this book.

159-104-101 Stanfield

Three more Stanfield cables

 

#159

#104

#101

Again, the picture is upside-down, with the cast-off toward the bottom of the picture instead of the top. I didn’t state that in the previous post, but it’s true for that one, too.  This works out for me when I’m designing a top-down garment, but could be strange for people who might want to see what something looks like from the bottom up. (Right-side-up, or the way the swatch was knitted.)

 

That middle cable, #104, was a strange one. When you look at the chart, you wonder how what you’re seeing will turn into any kind of a cable. Maybe it’s a misprint. But then you knit it, and it does work out. The wonders of knitting never cease.
