This tutorial has been a long time coming. My apologies. It was back in November 2009 when my first was just a little one when I first showed this continuous cable border and I used it again for my sisters wedding present in August 2012. I have received so many e-mails asking for the pattern. Here is the pattern that I will leave up for the month of March on the blog before putting a PDF version it in my Etsy store. If you would like a PDF version of the pattern e-mailed to you during March - please let me know.
I haven't done much hand knitting for a longtime. My little bunnies are SO fascinated by knitting needles and the wonder of throwing a ball of yarn around - I can't tell you how many times I accidentally left the knitting within arm reach of one of them and they pulled the needles out! You would have thought I would have learnt after the first occurrence of needle pulling - but apparently not!
Continuous Cable Border Pattern
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced. Clear understanding of knitting cables.
Once you have this concept down it can be applied to any sized knitted panel.
For these pictures and for the purposes of demonstrating this pattern I used: Eco Wool - Vanilla (# 8014) from Cascade.
My swatches are 30 stitches across & 40 stitches down – I used my Ultimate Sweater machine to knit these squares. You can also make a practice swatch by hand knitting.THIS PATTERN IS NOW AVAILABLE IN MY ETSY SHOP.
