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!
BE SURE TO SUBSCRIBE ABOVE! It’s quick, easy and free!
To this stitch is a mixture of FPDC, 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 (once it’s up) 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 4 + 4)
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.
TR/RF2TOG: *yo twice, insert hook as indicated, yo, draw loop through, (yo, draw through 2 loops) twice*.
the base row – 1 SC into the 2nd CH from the hook, 1 SC in the next 2 CHs, *PSC (picot single crochet) into next CH, 1 SC into each of the next 3 CHs; rep from * to end, CH 3, turn.
R1 – (CH 3 counts as 1 DC), skip 1st ST, 1 DC into each ST to end, skip TCH [turning chain], CH 1, turn.
R2 – 1 SC into 1st ST, *PSC into next ST, 1 SC into next ST**, tr/rf2tog over next ST inserting the hook around the 2nd SC in the second-to-last row for 1st leg and around the following 4th SC for the 2nd leg (skipping 3 STS in between), 1 SC into the next ST;rep from * ending the last rep at ** in the top of the TCH, CH 3, turn.
R3 – row 1 repeat
R4 – 1 CH, 1 SC into 1st ST, 1tr/rf2tog over the next STinserting the hook around the top of the 1st raised cluster 2 rows below, *1 SC into the next ST, PSC into the next ST, 1 SC into the next ST**, tr/rf2tog over the next ST inserting hook around the same cluster as last raised ST for 1st leg and around the top of the next raised cluster for the 2nd leg; rep from * ending the last rep at ** when 2 STS remain, tr/rf over next ST inserting the hook around the top of the same cluster as last raised ST, 1 SC into the top of the TCH, CH 3, turn.
R5 – row 1 repeat
R6 – row 2 repeat, except to make new raised clusters you will insert the hook around the previous raised clusters instea of scs
REPEAT ROWS 3-6 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!
