Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a fairly simple cable, worked as part of the blanket, on a diagonal. The design uses increases, decreases, and short rows to create the diagonal.
  • The pattern is designed for Intarsia cables but could be worked in a single color.

Pattern Description:

I love cables. Colored cables are even more fun and working them on the diagonal adds some interest to a project.

To make this as pictured, you'll need 3-4 balls of the main color yarn, one ball for the background of the diagonal panel, and partial balls of 2-4 more colors.

Depending on how many colors you decide to use, you could be working with up to 7 strands for most of the project.

The pattern includes written instructions for the beginning and ending corners, a chart for the cable, and charts for each corner.

Gauge:

24 stitch and 32 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in stockinette on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Using fingering yarn, on US 3 (3.25 cm) needles, the blanket will be about 26" (66 cm) square . Using DK yarn, on US 7 (4.5mm) needles, the blanket will be about 31" (79 cm) square.

Materials:

  • A needle large enough to hold about 220 stitches at your gauge. 800-1000 yards (730-915 M) of the background color yarn. Additional color yarns for the cable.

You Will Also Need:

  • 6 stitch markers and a cable needle.

1200 yards of DK weight

About the designer

I started knitting & sewing as a child so I've tried a variety of techniques. A couple of years ago I started writing up some of my designs for others to enjoy.
