A very easy to memorize cable pattern. I didn’t include gauge here. I would suggest swatching till you get a fabric that pleases you. This is a good pattern for cabling without cable needles, especially if you use Malabrigo, since it’s not a slippery yarn.
This site has a random stripe generator which is rather cool. You select your yarn colors, stripe width by rows, and number of rows you'd like to generate. Gives a general idea of what your project will look like. Fun to play with!! Biscuits and Jam
Worked on just ten stitches, these garter stitch zigzag strips are joined as you go so there is no sewing up. This technique can be used to make blankets or scarves and works with any yarn and needles. The strips could also be knitted in different yarns making it a good pattern for using up oddments.
