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 🙂

A Lesson In Existential Knitting by Knitzsche

The Sentinels, formidable ktbl stitches, kept a firm control over the knit and purl rib.

The Ribellion Cable

One day the rib stitches could take no more and after a fierce battle with the Sentinels, made a bid for freedom.

The Ribellion Cable

Their victory was short-lived. The Sentinels quelled the rebellion and bought the rib stitches back under their control.

The Ribellion Cable

This epic saga is retold in The Ribellion Cable. Now you too can relive the battle everytime you knit the pattern, and with each row, remember the bravery of the oppressed rib stitches.
