Cable Comfort Throw

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts = 4 in. [10 cm] over St st (k on RS, p on WS)

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Cable Comfort Throw Reviewed by Sandy Waid on 2014-11-17 *****
I have made this pattern twice, once for a wedding gift, and one to keep for me.
I combine the panel patterns to knit it back and forth on long circular needles as one piece. That way I don't have to sew the panels together at the end, which to me seems like a huge hassle. It works up fairly quick in the chunky yarn. This is a great project to learn cabling and I would recommend it to beginners who want to learn a new stitch.
