With solid color knit in pattern for 6 rows and then alternate between 2 rows of variegated and then 2 rows of solid.

Heritage Silk Cabled Top

Heritage Silk Cabled Top

Heritage silk cable top

 

Heritage Silk yarn from Cascade feels great on your needles.  It’s superwash Merino and Mulberry Silk.  This pattern uses a double strand so it turns out thicker – 5 stitches per inch.  The double cable runs down the front and the back.

The pattern was designed by Marilyn Peters and is on Cascade Yarns website.  But after finding a few omissions, I rewrote it.  I only have it in a medium size but if you’re able to adjust the pattern you could change for other sizes.

Enoy the yarn.  It’s fabulous – I have a rich purple and fushia in stock.
