Double Cable Blanket/Afghan/throw

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • cable

Pattern Description:

I created this 60"x 72" throw pattern based on my popular "Chocolate Buttons" pillow cover which I designed some time ago and which uses this cable http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/home-decor/chocolate-buttons-cable-pillow-cover/42519

The blanket is knit using a double thickness worsted/#4/aran yarn, or you could substitute a super bulky/super chunky/#6 yarn.

This is really quite a straightforward pattern for the beginner knitter who has some familiarity working a simple cable. It calls for a circular needle (rows knit back and forth) to accommodate the large number of stitches and a cable needle.

If you have the patience to work on one project for a long time, you should have no trouble with this pattern and will have a beautiful heirloom for your family to enjoy for years to come.
