If you are new to crochet cables or scared like I was for many years, I have 3 patterns to get you started.
It took me years, yes years to get enough courage to try cables. I am not sure why but I was scared to try them, in my head they were SOOOOO hard to learn. Had I ever tried to learn, no
One day my friend Cassie came over to teach me and I couldn't believe how easy they were! Ok, when I say easy, if you can do a front post and a back post double crochet, then you can (with practice) make a simple crochet cable like the Linda's Cable Stitch Hat - I designed this hat in memory of my mum who passed away 2 1/2 years ago. I made it in grey because it represents Brain Cancer awareness and that horrible cancer is what took my mum away from my family
Gosh, before we get all emotional and I can not see what I am typing, back to the subject at hand, cables !
They are pretty and there are so many different ways you can make them
So far I have 3 designs, which reminds me I really have to designs some more projects with cables !
The next cable hat and the next step up is the Cassiopia Cable hat - this was designed in memory of my friend Cassie who passed away about 3 months before my mum :( I thought I have to design a cable hat in memory of her, because Cassie is the one that taught me :)
The last cable pattern I have for you is the Cable stitch scarf or blanket if you want to get adventurous !
This pattern still has simple cables but they are repeated more often and in the blanket I used 3 strands at once. THe blanket grows fast and looks awesome
The written patterns for all 3 designs can be found below
Hope you enjoy the patterns and have a go, but remember if you have not done cables before, you may not get it first, second, third or even 10th go, but that is ok :) Take a deep breath, have some chocolate/coffee/tea/wine and relax and try again, just don't drink to much wine because your crochet cables will not get any easier to learn LOL
Have a fantabulous week
