This slipped stitch cable design invites you to practice a rarely used technique – wrong side cables! But since it is so infrequently seen, the pattern keeps it easy with 1/1 cables and leaves the more advanced cables for the right side only.
The tech edited and test knit pattern is fully written and fully charted.

- Cable It Wrong Side: wrong side cables are very intuitive. If you are new to them, here are some tips
- - 1/1 LC cables knit on the rs are 1/1 LC cables purled on the ws.
- - 1/1 RC cables knit on the rs are 1/1 RC cables purled on the ws.
- Check out the Knit Eco Chic website for a video demonstration of each of the four wrong side cables used - Working Wrong Side Cables.
- Count It: row by row stitch counts are included in written directions.
- Track It: since this garter slipped stitch design is worked flat, the color changes and numbering are similar to that of brioche. Each Row number is worked twice: once with MC and once with CC. So that’s two consecutive right side rows followed by two wrong side rows. A circular needle is used to enable moving to the end to pick up the appropriate color where it was left off.
