Product Description

An interesting stitch pattern that uses cable twists in a different sort of way makes for a satisfying project with great textural results!

As a baby blanket (4 sizes included!), this design is easily that special gift that a new Mom will go gaga over! As a full-sized throw/blanket, you'll elevate your home décor to a new level of chic.

Edges are knit in Moss st, with the curving cables and lace pattern featured as the all-over design. The pattern is simple to work with basic yarn overs and paired decreases. Intermittent cable crosses give this blanket its curved, eye-catching surface texture.

  1. Beautiful pattern!

    Posted by Jo on 24th Jan 2019

    I have been looking for a unique blanket pattern to make a baby blanket. This will be perfect. I can't wait to get started!

  2. Pretty Pattern

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jan 2019

    Instructions are very well written. I am doing the border in a variegated yarn and the pattern in a solid colour. Looks really good.

  3. Another Hit by Sweaterbabe

    Posted by Linda on 8th Jun 2014

    I have purchased many patterns from Sweaterbabe and am always impressed with them. I purchased the 3 best baby blankets and have made each one of them and got raves from the recipients. Can't wait to start this one, it will be a gift for a friends Mom and she loves purple. Looking forward to the experience of another well written and beautiful pattern.

  4. Traveling Cables Rating

    Posted by Heather Kurtz on 19th May 2014

    It is absolutely gorgeous as all of the patterns I have purchased here! The skill and talent of the creator is amazing to me. I am a very new knitter so some of it I am still learning, but I cant wait until I complete the blanket.

  5. Expert results, minimal skill

    Posted by Marilyn Gauger on 13th May 2014

    I made this blanket as a raffle prize for a lung transplant patient. It took me about a week to complete just working on it a few hours a day. The directions were clear and easy to complete. The result is gorgeous. We did not even have the auction yet and people are asking to purchase it.

  6. My MIL loves it

    Posted by Karen on 12th May 2014

    i made the smallest size as a lap blanket for my MIL who is in a wheelchair. She likes it, and wants to use it as a shawl. It's a bit short. I'm not willing to re-knit it, so she will have to use it as it.

    The pattern is easy to follow and small cables combined with the large ones are very pretty.

  7. A very pretty blanket!

    Posted by Karen on 11th May 2014

    Fun to knit and very pretty! But I need to finish it now! :)
