What's on my needles?

Recently, I was intrigued by a stitch pattern that creates the look of diagonal woven fabric using 4-stitch cables. It is very attractive and surprisingly simple. I was looking for a stitch that would work in a concept I had for a sweater with columns of cables, but not the typical cables I've seen so many times. So, inspired by the essence of the diagonal woven fabric, I isolated the cable and spaced them to create what I had envisioned for my latest sweater, called Addison. Here's the stitch pattern. Space the cables as close or far apart as you wish. Perhaps it will inspire you as it did me.

Worked Flat:

Row 1: K2, place the next 2 sts onto a cable needle and hold to the front. K the next 2 sts from the needle, then the 2 sts from the cable needle (Cable 4 Left), K2.

Row 2: P8.

Row 3: [Place 2 sts on the cable needle and hold to the back, K the next 2 sts from the needle then the 2 sts from the cable needle (Cable 4 Right)] 2 times.

Row 4: P8.

Row 5: K2, Cable 4 Left, K2.

Row 6: P8

Worked in the Round:

Row 1: K2, Cable 4 Left, K2.

Row 2: K8.

Row 3: Cable 4 Right 2 times.

Row 4: K8.

Row 5: K2, Cable 4 Left, K2.

Row 6: K8
