R ‘n’ B Cable

R ‘n’ B? No not that R ‘n’ B, but Rib ‘n’ Bobble, I thought it was quite appropriate for my latest design!

For part of this pattern I worked a cable over 11 stitches, as it doesn’t appear to come under the usual Cable definitions, I’ve called them Cross11F and Cross11B, any problems, leave me a comment 🙂
