When I was creating this I really wanted the cèilidh cable to be the highlight, but I wanted to add some structure to the piece as well. I live in pretty cold parts of Canada, and in Alberta the winters can be long and harsh, so I wanted something I could wear that would really protect me against the chill in the coming months.
The trellis cable flanking each side of the main cable added that structure that I was looking for. Not entirely for the faint of heart, this pattern has cabling on every single row – right side and wrong side. If you’re a lover of cables (like me!) you’ll rise to the challenge! The lovely thing about this particular trellis cable is that it’s easy to read on the wrong side, and after the first few four-row repeats of the trellis you won’t even have to look at the chart.
