Contrary to its name, the Tiny Eyelet Cables stitch is a mock cable stitch and does not require the use of cable needles to produce the “cable” look. With only 4 rows and knitted in a multiple of 6 stitches plus 3, this stitch is a fast knit and is far less complicated to knit than it looks. If you want to have the “cable” look without having to actually go through the hassle of knitting cables, the Tiny Eyelet Cables stitch is one you should certainly try.
