The Robin’s Cables Afghan pdf pattern is perfect for adventurous beginners (by that I mean people who know how to do the sc, hdc and dc stitches).
Do you love the look of cables but don’t quite feel ready to tackle them? Then this pattern is perfect for you! There are no cables involved – only sc, hdc, dc, camel stitch (third loop hdc) and foundation hdc (US terms). Pattern includes a link to a video tutorial on the camel stitch and foundation hdc.
Throw size (52’’ x 60’’) requires 3250 yards of #4 weight yarn and a 6mm hook. Stitch markers are recommended to help identify the first and last stitches of the row, especially with the textured sections.
You will be surprised just how stunning this simple combination of stitches looks in this Robin’s Cables Afghan!
We have also used it in some of other patterns, for example the Robin’s Poncho, which is also popular.
Gauge is based on the repeat, but I tell you the stitch multiple in the pattern so that you can make this one any size you desire! As it is an afghan gauge is not super important, but each of my repeats were 2.5”
