Today’s Crochet cable pattern will be a little more difficult then the previous one’s we have done. I am currently in the process of getting the video tutorial uploaded to YouTube and once I do I will send out a post update email to those of you who are subscribed!

To this stitch is a mixture of FPtr2tog (front post triple crochet 2 together), SC and picot stitches. I made a baby blanket size so that will be the exact pattern I will share today. However, you can refer to the handmade blanket chart below to create whatever sized blanket you would like to make.
I highly recommend watching the video to understand exactly how the diamond cables are made. Unless you learn more easily through reading, you’re going to get extremely confused!
It’s not hard once you see it being done.
I will go ahead write out the stitch pattern here for the size I made as well as what materials I used. If you have any further questions about this project just comment down below or email me!
I will do my absolute best to help you!
WHAT I USED:
– size 9mm hook
– 8 skeins Lion Brand Yarn (wool-ease collection) in the color marble
– tapestry needle
(this pattern works in multiples of 8 + 3)
PICOT SINGLE CROCHET: insert hook, yo, draw loop through, [yo, draw through 1 loop] 3 times, yo, draw through both loops on hook. Draw picot CH loops to front of the work.
FPtr2TOG: *yo twice, insert hook as indicated, yo, draw loop through, (yo, draw through 2 loops) twice*.
Row 1 – Turn. CH 1. SC in the 2nd CH from the hook. *3 scs, single crochet picot*; rep from * to * across, ending with 3 scs.
Row 2 – Turn. CH 2. Skip first SC, 2 DCS, * tr in ch behind and below single crochet picot, 3 DCs*; repeat from * to *across ending with 3 DCs, sk tch (turning chain).
Row 3 – Turn. CH 1. * SC, single crochet picot, sc, FPtr2TOG around scs 2 rows below ___2 stitches back and 2 stitches forward, sk tr behind FPtr2TOG*; repeat from * to * across, ending with sc in tch.
Row 4 – Turn. CH 2. * tr in DC behind and below single crochet picot, 3 DCs*; repeat from * to * ending with DC in SC, sk tch.
Row 5 – Turn. CH 1. SC, FPtr in FPtr2TOG 2 rows below and 2 stitches forward, sk tr behind FPtr, *sc, single crochet picot, sc, FPtr2TOG around FPtr2TOG 2 rows below ___ 2 stitches back and 2 stitches forward, sk tr behind FPtr2TOG*; repeat from * to *across, ending with FPtr around FPtr2TOG 2 rows below and 2 stitches back, sc in tch.
REPEAT ROWS 2 – 5 until you reach your desired length!
Now for me when I first began trying to learn this stitch I was completely overwhelmed with words. With some time and lots of frogging I got it figured out.
Again,once the video is up you will be able to see exactly what needs to be done in order for you to create this same stitch pattern!
For now, you can pin this to your crochet boards on Pinterest and gather your supplies!
