  • I started making the swatching like I should, but i make sure they are all the same size, they will make a nice blanket when I finally get enough, and you look at it and remember what you made with them.

  • Question about this pattern, wouldn’t you do the repeat of rows 9-16 instead of 1-16? I thought the first 8 rows were the border.

    Patty says: Yes, the first 8 rows are the garter stitch border.

  • This cable scarf is exactly what I was looking for for my boss but there does not appear a crochet pattern. How can I convert?


    Zontee says: Hi Marnia, you can’t directly “convert” knitting to crochet or vice versa, but click here for a crochet cable stitch pattern you could make a scarf out of.
