Cable Vision

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®


22 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Broken Cable pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


6/6 LC (6 over 6 left cross) Slip 6 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k6, then k6 from cable needle.
6/6 RC (6 over 6 right cross) Slip 6 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k6, then k6 from cable needle.

Reviewed by unionsoulsheart on 2014-11-29 *****
Very chunky cables but beautifully textured. Easy pattern to follow. It did feel like a never ending pattern though, I guess ponchos and shrugs end up feeling like that, and sometimes I feel I should have just made a blanket for all the work that goes into an "outfit". It's a heavy poncho. I'll wear it around the house but honestly, the wool ease doesn't agree with my skin, it's not really warm and it scratches and itches. I wear it over an outfit so only my neck is sore and itchy by the afternoon. My dogs seem to like it though since they jump and curl up on me!
