Rated as one of the easier cable stitches, the Fuchsia Stitch is worked in a 10-row repeat and knitted in multiple of 8 stitches. Worked in a large panel, this cabled stitch creates a design which resembles a series of fuchsia flowers running vertically down the project. The Fuchsia Stitch requires only two cable techniques thus making it perfect for beginning cable knitters!
