Braided Cable Tutorial for the
In 2017, I designed the Braided Cable Block Collection for my nephew which included a Throw, Bolster pillow, Square pillow and Rectangle pillow. It was beautiful and he and his new wife absolutely loved it. The only thing that I didn't like about it was the ridges on the wrong side of the work that you get when working post stitches. I wanted a solution but I knew that it wouldn't be easy to explain in terms that everyone can understand.
I hope that you will try something new if you haven't worked cables before. The Braided Cable is probably the simplest cable to work and once you get the hang of them, they're addicting!

I'm Kate and crochet is my passion. I've been crocheting for 30+ years and as you can see from the selection of designs on my site, blankets are my obsession. I absolutely love creating something that will wrap my love around friends and family when they're in need of comfort.
Having 4 beautiful girls of my own has also inspired many infant, toddler and child size dresses. They are my biggest cheerleaders and have enjoyed wearing the things I've made them.
