Pattern Notes/Tips:

For this blanket you’ll have to pay close attention to your tension. If you happen to be a tight crocheter, I recommend going up one hooks size. When you crochet more tightly it makes the formation of the cables a bit more difficult. I want to make sure you have the easiest time with making this blanket so try out a small swatch (multiple of 9+3) and see if going up a hook size will make this pattern work even better for you.

Cables are made using a combination of FPDC & BPDC.

HDCs are placed in between each of the cables.

Each stripe is a total of 12 rows with the exception of the 1st stripe and last stripe. These will have a few extra so you are able to begin and finish the blanket.

The entire pattern is a 4-row repeat.

Color changes are indicated with (color a)and (color b).

Don’t Have Time To Make The Blanket? No problem! Simply pin the image below and save it for later.

CREATING A BORDER:

If you want to add a border, you can start at any point in the blanket.

 Take your crochet hook and insert it into a stitch, put your slip knot on the hook and draw up a loop. Then, do a CH 2. You will proceed all the way around the blanket placing HDCs in each stitch.

 Be sure you put 3 HDCs together in each corner to be sure you get a nice, rounded edge.
