The Lace and Cable Panel is a gorgeous stitch worked with a background of reverse stockinette with lace framed by cables. The cables are a little different in the sense that the RS is knit in the back loop and the WS is purled in the back loop. The Lace and Cable Panel stitch pattern works in multiples of 21 over an 8 row repeat.
Below there is a chart for you, as well.
