Yarn: Cascade 220 100% wool, in Gold
Needles: 4.5mm / US 7
Gauge: 7 stitches and 7 rows per inch
Stitch Pattern: 6-stitch cables, with 2 purls on either side, and a 1-stitch rib to separate them
Source: Leisure Arts #932, 60 Easy to Knit Pattern Stitches Combine to Create Sampler Afghans, except I only made 3 cables, and I reversed the twist on the center one.
Comments: I'm on a Cascade 220 kick right now because it shows the stitches nicely, and I have loads of it left over from a Dr. Who Scarf I made for my brother for Christmas. Worsted weight makes for quick swatches too! (although this one really needs to be blocked!) :)
