Simple celtic panel

-->

An infinite cable pattern with a simple 16-row repeat. The foundation row requires 15 stitches (pattern increases to 23) and can be used as a replacement for the side cable pattern of Rogue, for those who don’t want to have waist shaping.

Sorry, I don’t have a swatch at this time for this chart!

Although the symbols in this chart may differ from the symbols used in Rogue, they represent the same techniques for opening and closing cable loops.

The total row count of this chart is 32. If you use this chart as a replacement for the side panel of Rogue, then you’ll work this chart in place of the side panel chart (of course), and you’ll ignore the pattern directions for working repeats. Instead, you’ll need to select your number of repeats to reach an appropriate body length for your garment. At Rogue‘s gauge of 6 rows per inch:

Working rows 9 through 24 three times will equal 64 rows, or 10.7 inches (too short for most people).

Working rows 9 through 24 four times will equal 80 rows, or 13.3 inches.

Working rows 9 through 24 five times will equal 96 rows, or 16 inches.

You can add to the length a bit by adding a couple of rounds of reverse stockinette before and/or after the chart, but try to keep this extra length to one inch or less at the bottom and the top of the side panel. An alternate replacement chart is the Composite Celtic Panel, which has a 24-row repeat.

If you make the kangaroo pocket, start it at the same point as in the original instructions.
