For exotic and handspun yarns

Here is the greatest little cable that is easy to add to anything you are knitting. It makes a good ribbing too. Add this to your next knitting pattern project! Great for sweaters, socks, hats, gloves ... anything!

MOCK CABLE PATTERN:

YO = Yarn over.
Psso = pass sl st over.

Start your swatch by casting on 22 sts

Row 1: p2, *sl 1, knit 2, psso 2 knit sts, p2; rep from * across.
Row 2: knit 2, *p1, yo, p1, knit 2; rep from * across
