The Not Rocket Science Coffee Holder


I know I said that there would be no more work these holidays but it would seem that I lied. This is just a quicky and as the title suggests, it is definitely not rocket science so here goes. I really like the mirror image cables that this design creates all the way around.

Materials:

30-35m Worsted Weight Yarn
5mm DPNs
Cable needle
Darning Needle.

Gauge: 20 sts/10 cm

Abbreviations:

C6B: slip 3 stitches onto the cable needle, hold them behind the work, knit 3 stitches, then the 3 from the cable needle.

C6F: slip 3 stitches onto the cable needle, hold them in front of the work, knit 3 stitches, then the 3h from the cable needle.



Pattern:

CO 48sts, join to work in the round.

Work 5 rounds of 2x2 ribbing.

Cable section
Rounds 1-3: [k6, p2] repeat to end
Round 4: [C6F, p2, C6B, p2] repeat to end
Rounds 5-10: [k6, p2] repeat to end
Round 11: [C6F, p2, C6B, p2] repeat to end
Rounds 12-14: [k6, p2] repeat to end

Work 4 rounds of 2x2 rib and bind off.

Weave in your ends and Voila! See not even close to rocket science.
