Blackberry Cables Blanket/Throw/Afghan
Blackberry Cables Blanket/Throw/Afghan

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Work cables
  • Work patterns over different number of rows simultaneously

Pattern Description:

This 60"x72" blanket was inspired by one of my pillow cover designs: https://www.etsy.com/listing/118811806/blackberry-cables-hand-knit-16-x-16?ref=shop_home_active

I was asked by a customer to knit a blanket in the same pattern and this is the result. Its knit in a double thickness 100% wool, worsted yarn.

This pattern is really for the experienced knitter who is willing to put in a lot of hours of knitting!

Its knit back and forth on a circular needle to accomodate the large number of stitches.

You will need to know how to use a cable needle and be able to knit two different patterns over different numbers of rows.... but it will be worth the hard work!
