Cabled Afghan

jmmattes's picture

I just finished a cabled afghan as a surprise Christmas present for a friend. I started it in September and finished it a few days ago.

Here are some of the details.
Pattern: Cable Comfort Throw by Lion Brand Yarn
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver – Ranch Red
Needles: 10 1/2 circular (I don't know the exact length)
Modifications: I wanted a bigger size, so I cast on to make 6 of the cable panels and did 16 repeats of the pattern. Since I didn't have a bulky weight yarn I doubled up the worsted weight.

All in all it was a pretty easy knit. I definitely will keep this in mind if I get any more requests for a cabled afghan.

I looked over the pattern

I looked over the pattern for that and I think you did the right thing doing it all as one piece. Yours looked so much nicer than the photos in the pattern.

It is quite warm. While working on it I had to take breaks more often to cool off than to rest my hands!
