Medium sized diagonal basketweave cable knitting stitch pattern. Free knitting stitch by Knitting Bee.
The larger sister of Diagonal Basketweave Cable Stitch – Small, this beautiful free knitting stitch creates a dense fabric that is fantastic for use in clothes that need to be extra warm.
I love how this stitch looks in this rich royal purple yarn.
Please find the free pattern below. I link back to this page would be appreciated if you have created something out of this stitch.
