CLOSER LOOK Diagonal Basket Weave Cable Stitch

Before you get started, I want to emphasize that this cable stitch is a very tight weave, as it crisscrosses itself. If you like the look of this stitch, but would rather it be a more medium weave (and not so tight), you may wish to knit with needles larger than your yarn gauge recommends. Check out my new Lattice Stitch cable pattern, as well as my simple Basket Weave knit stitch pattern.

Take a look at the right and wrong sides of this Diagonal Basket Weave Knit Stitch Pattern. You can see that it is NOT a reversible pattern, as the pretty design is only visible on the right side of our work.
