The Cable Crochet Stitch is such a beautiful, lacy and fairly simple stitch once you get the hang of it. It involves yarn overs, single crochet and a 2 row repeat. The Cable Crochet Stitch pattern is worked over multiples of 6+2

Disclosure: The yarn and hook used are some of my absolute favorites. So much so that I became an affiliate with the companies. What that means for you is that when you purchase using my link, you allow the company to pay me a small commission without costing you a penny more. This helps me to continue making free tutorials and patterns. The links are below with the Materials Needed if you’d like to check them out.
