(Note: It has been brought to my attention that I had included a row {Row 17: (p2, k4, p2) X 3} which is not necessary to the pattern, I knitted this a long time ago and cannot remember the reference book i pulled it out from, so I have decided to take that row 17 out. Looking through all my reference books I have come across this celtic cable two more times, once in a written form and another in a chart as part of a cable and lace wrap, I will add these to the post so you can have a look at alternatives for this stitch)
