Introduction: 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!
