This gorgeous cabled blanket is perfect to snuggle up with!
A simple ribbed border frames this DK cabled blanket perfectly.
These unusual cable patterns are formed using very simple cable stitch repeats. If you know how to work a simple C4F (Cable 4 Front) and C4B (Cable 4 Back) this could be your next cable knit project. Detailed row by row instructions and charts help to make this pattern easy to follow.
