Cable Baby Blanket



Recently I posted that I was learning to crochet cables. I used this pattern at About.com to learn the basic technique.

I like making the cables! One you get a knack for it, it's not at all complicated. It's repetitive enough that I don't have to count or "think too hard", but varied enough that I don't get bored.


I don't, however, enjoy joining squares, and the thought of making enough cabled squares to create even the smallest baby blanket turned my stomach. So.... I used the basic techniques that I learned to make this 5-cable baby blanket. I'm really pleased with the result! I just love the look, and look forward to making more cabled projects.

Very impressive. Who says you can't crochet? I will beat them up for you.
