how to knit cable trim edge

 

I have been working on Mothers Day pattern lately (besides some big orders that I have been making). It is going to be a triangle shawl (Edit: no it wasn’t – take a look how it turned out), but I have only border so far.

I am happy what I have accomplished, so I’m sharing this pattern for knit cable edging with you. Hope you like it.

 

 

 

Note! All right side (RS) rows start with knit stitch. All wrong side (WS) rows start with slip stitch purl wise.
