Cable Crochet Stitch

by M. J. Joachim
Updated 4/19/16




The cable stitch uses a combination of double and single crochet rows, but adds a bit of extra interest to the design, by including a cross-over double crochet throughout the pattern. It can be used as a fun trim on jeans, an all-over pattern for a sweater, lined skirt or purse and combination with other stitch patterns to make household items, crafts and whatever your heart desires.

Foundation Row: Make a chain divisible by 4 (+2 more chain stitches)

Step 1: chain 1, turn; single crochet in each stitch across the row and in top of turning chain on additional rows

Step 2: chain 3, turn; skip next single crochet, double crochet in next 3 sc stitches

Step 3: yarn over, insert hook from front to back in missed stitch and make 1 double crochet stitch over the last 3 double crochet stitches you just made

Step 4: skip next single crochet, double crochet in next 3 sc stitches

Step 5: repeat steps 3 and 4 across row; finish with 1 dc in turning chain

Step 6: repeat steps 1 – 5 for pattern
