The winged crochet cable stitch is a great way to incorporate texture into your project. It’s not reversible making it perfect for projects where only one side will show. It creates a sturdy fabric so use it when durability is a must.
Pair the winged cable stitch with just about any yarn in your stash from lightweight to super bulky. Choose a smooth yarn for stitch definition that’ll show off the pattern or pair it with a slightly textured yarn for an even more interesting look.
