Picture of DIY Cable Knit Neckwarmer

This pattern is quick to knit, and very easy! It's great for beginners who want to practice cables! Check out the full pattern at my blog: Eyes Of Style.

Materials:

1 skein Chunky Mochi yarn by crystal palace- or any bulky yarn suited for size 10-11 needles. Gauge isn’t terribly important, as long as it covers your neck up, you’re good!

US size 10.5/ 6.5 mm knitting needles

Cable needle or DPN (I used a double pointed needle)

Darning needle for weaving in ends

Buttons

Abbreviations:

CO: Cast on

BO: Bind off

K: Knit

P: Purl

cn: cable needle

C6F: cable 6 front (sl next 3 sts to cn and hold in front, K3, K3 from CN)

C6B: cable 6 back

sl: slip

sts: stitches

Button holes:

Cast on 26 stitches

Row 1: K6, BO2 K10, BO2, K6

*There should be 6 stitches on both sides of your “hole”.

Row 2: Knit 6, co 2, k10, co 2, k 6

*You should now have 26 stitches back on your needle.

Row 3: Knit

Now you have your button holes!
