Basic Skills Necessary:

  • reading charts

Pattern Description:

The inspiration for the Cables and Squares design was from stitch patterns prevalent in the Weldon's series, published in 19th-century England. Cables with rib and knit/purl textures with rib were often used in sweaters, socks and scarves in Victorian knitting. This style of stitches creates garments with elasticity for comfort, and extra warmth for chilly weather.
