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.
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
CO: Cast on
BO: Bind off
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
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!
