Opulent Knit Cable


This Opulent Knit Cable pattern is great for making sweaters and scarves.  It's easy enough for new knitters and is a great cable pattern for those who are new to creating a cable stitch pattern.

knit cable pattern


  • 10.5 knitting needle
  • Yarn of your choice


Gauge: 5.17 stitches per inch; 5.33 rows per inch


  • Moss Stitch- On Right Side (RS) rows you will K1, P1, K1, P1 K1; On the Wrong Side (WS) rows you will do the opposite of what you see. If you see a knit then you will purl it and so on.
  • Cable (13 stitch crossover)= Slip 6 stitches to the cable needle, hold in front, then K6 AND P1 then K6 from the cable needle.


Work cable on 13 stitches. So multiples of 13 are needed. I surrounded it by Reverse Stockinette Stitch and then by Moss stitch so it wouldn’t curl.  I wrote out the instructions for the even rows but you're just knitting the knits and purling the purls. If you need the written instructions then they are there for you to refer to.

  1. Chain 31
  2. (RS) Row 1,3,5,7,9,11,15,17: 5 Moss, P4, K6, P1, K6, P4, 5 Moss
  3. (WS) Row 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20: 5 Moss, K4, P6, K1, P6, K4, 5 Moss
  4. Rows 13 and 19: 5 Moss, P4, Cable, P4, 5 Moss
  5. REPEAT ROWS 1-20 as needed.



  1. Row 1,3,5,7,9,11,15,17: K6, P1, K6
  2. Row 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20: P6, K1, P6
  3. Row 13 and 19: 5 Moss, P4, Cable, P4, 5 Moss
