I saw this vest in a store window and was intriqued with the cross-like cables. Can anyone give me an idea of how they would be worked?
Hi Janine Suzanne,
The vest of the pic you've posted is awesome. There is no mystery. It is just a three part cable. Where you see the X shape, the stitches on the borders are twisted knit stitches and the ones in the middle are purl stitches. If you do not know how to make a three part cable there is a video tutorial that can help you out to make them. Of course the style of the cable is up to you. Like the one on the video or the one in your picture or any other your creativity lets you make up.
Hope this could help and Welcome to Knitting Daily!!
Patience, persistence and love are the main ingredients for wonderful knittings.
