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. 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. 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. SUGGESTED YARN 1200 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Dreambaby DK

I started knitting as a child. Over the years I used a lot of patterns written by others. At some point I decided to experiment and create things from my own designs. A few years ago I started writing up my patterns for others to use. I hope you enjoy my efforts.
