Endless Cables Chunky Knit Throw Pattern

4K SharesHey friends! Being that it’s blanket season, I wanted to share this simple cable knit throw that I made a couple of years ago.? It was so much fun for me to work the cables and the blanket knit up surprisingly fast.? It’s easy as it’s mostly made up of garter stitch, simple stripes of stockinette and two super simple cables.? Anyone who wants to venture out into the world of cables from doing basic knit stitches should be able to enjoy this pattern.? You can also find a step by step photo tutorial on how to knit this exact cable stitch pattern on the blog (here).Below: My baby all cuddled up in cables!The?Lion Brand Color Clouds?yarn that I used is super soft and super chunky.? They don’t carry this particular color any longer, but they’ve got some other vibrant options on their site.? However, I think you can also sub with Wool Ease Thick & Quick (here), but you’d need to hold two strands together to equal about one strand of Color Clouds. (That’s my best guess anyway!)MY LATEST VIDEOSWhen I take the time to knit or crochet something, I hope that it can be appreciated for a long time. Cables are classic and timeless, so my favorite thing about this cable knit blanket is that it isn’t going out of style anytime soon. It’s also nice because it’s a fairly big project but not overwhelming because of the big needles and big yarn. Yay!It had to be named?“Endless Cables” because the blanket is all about the two forever long cables that look like they are?going to?twist themselves?right off the end of the afghan.??__? Cables you say……easy??? YES!?These are super duper easy cables, and you can see my picture tutorial below on how to make them.??
