Coin Lace and Cable Wrap
The Coin lace and Cable is my mother’s favorite pattern. The cable is a 6 stitch cable, crossed every 8th row. The coin lace, twisted every 4th row, has a cable effect without actual cabling; each twist has an eyelet at the center. The coin lace looks like an old Chinese coin, which is how it gets its name. A garter stitch border of 4 stitches edges the wrap. (Shui Kuen Kozinski - pattern intro)
