Cork Cable

Here is a simple but interesting Irish cable design featuring three ribs crossing either to the left or to the right. The two types can be used to balance each other as shown. For a third variation, the cable can be worked in braided fashion by using the front cross (Version II, Row 6) on the sixth row and the back cross (Version I, Row 6) on the twelfth.

Panel of 14 sts.

VERSION I. RACK CROSS

Row 1 (Wrong side) and all other wrong-side rows—K2, (p2. k2) 3 times.

Rows 2. 4, a, and 10—P2, (k2, p2) 3 times. Row 6—P2. k2, p2. Back Cross the next 6 sts as follows: si 4 sts to dpn and hold in back, k2, then si the 2 purl sts back to left-hand needle and purl them; then k2 from dpn: p2. Row 12—P2, Back Cross the next 6 sts as in Row 6: p2, k2, p2.

Repeat Rows 1-12.

VERSION II. FRONT CROSS

Work the same as I, above, with the following exceptions:

Row 6—P2, Front Cross the next 6 sts as follows: si 4 sts to dpn and hold in front, k2, then si the 2 purl sts back to left-hand needle and purl them; then k2 from dpn; p2. k2, p2. Row 12—P2, k2. p2, Front Cross the next 6 sts as in Row 6; p2.
