Knit Your Cables Afghan
Throw / Afghan
This is a wonderful throw for those who like to learn new stitch patterns with a variety of cabled textures. Each of the 10 squares is a knitting adventure! A garter stitched square is placed between the cabled squares in a checkerboard arrangement. We’ve shown it in all one neutral shade, but of course you can use whatever colors you choose for your own unique design.
