Wilde features a simple but effective cable pattern, easy to memorize but full of impact in the finished piece. It is knit flat from end to end using straight or circular needles. A slip stitch edge is used for a polished finish. Instructions are both written and charted making this pattern ideal for knitters who are new to working cables.
