My design ideas and advice: I love this cable plait and try to use it wherever I can. This rib is another good one because I like to have a row off wherever possible – a row in the pattern where you can relax. In this rib, you have a knit row where you can relax, and in the cable you have the wrong side row where you don’t cable so you can relax here too. I think knitting should be relaxing so this combination works perfectly! And if you wanted an adult version then you’ll find one in my Simple Knits book!
