Looks so creative and intricate, but these classic cables are simple! Even a beginner could make this project, it's beginner-friendly! Super fun and such a quick knit. The perfect lapghan for anyone who does a lot of sitting, such as those in wheelchairs. Would make an excellent baby blanket, too! Makes a great shower gift! Birthday gift. Holiday gift, etc. This pattern is made with worsted weight yarn. I used a size 11 circular needle. You'll need approximately 36 ounces. Pattern includes full color photos and detailed instructions.

I adore knitting and crocheting. I don't understand how people can sit and watch a movie and NOT be knitting or crocheting! Such wasted opportunity. =) My mother taught me how to do both right about the time I started Kindergarten. And here I am 40 years later, designing my own patterns. Although I still do buy quite a few from fellow designers! In my spare time I enjoy (duh!) knitting and crocheting, reading my Nook, walking... spare time is limited these days with nursing classes. If only I could find a way to knit while I study...
