Knitting Pattern: Cable and Ridge Square

Cable and Ridge Square, free knitting pattern in Lion Brand Vanna's Choice yarn by Underground CrafterThe knitting pattern for the Cable and Ridge Square combines a narrow cable with boxes of texture. The pattern is a simplified version of the stitch pattern I used in the Braided Beanie. This pattern is the thirty-sixth square in the Harmony Blanket Knit Along.

For each of the 10 patterns I’m designing in the Harmony Blanket KAL, I’ll be highlighting the book where I first found this stitch pattern. This pattern is from The Very Easy Guide to Cable Knitting: Step-by-Step Techniques, Easy-to-Follow Patterns, and Projects to Get You Started by Lynne Watterson. This is actually one of my favorite books to bring with me to classes where I teach cable stitches because it has great step-by-step pictures and beautiful cable stitch patterns.
