Knit With Me 20

Trellis Stitch

I'm really excited to have finally found my cable needle so I'm keen to try this pattern. It will certainly be eye-catching and bold in the blanket. I always used to think cabling was a really complicated and scary thing until I tried it one day (using a double ended needle) and realised it was just holding stitches out of the way really and then putting them somewhere else. If you haven't tried cabling I urge you to give it a go with these small squares we are doing. It is a nice little square for a first timer which is less daunting than a whole jumper and as you progress in knitting confidence, it is nice to have something a bit more brain twisting in your repertoire.
This is knit over multiples of 6 so I'm casting on 42 stitches. Sl = Slip  cn = cable needle

Trellis Stitch
Rows 1 & 3: *P2, K2, P2*
Row 2 and Alt Rows: K the P stitches and P the K stitches of the previous row
Row 5: *Sl 2 stitches on to cable needle and leave at back of work, K1, P2 from cable needle, Sl 1 on to cable needle and leave at the front of work, P2, K1 from cable needle*
Row 7 and 9: *K1, P4, K1*
Row 11: *Sl 1 on to cable needle and leave at front of work, P2, K1 from cable needle, Sl2 onto cable needle and leave at back of work, K1, P2 from cable needle*
Row 13: Repeat from row 1.
