Twisted Cable Throw

Lion Brand® Vanna's Colors

GAUGE:

10 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. 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.

Twisted Cable Throw - Nice! Reviewed by Elaine Greywalker on 2013-07-04 ****
A good pattern if you like making visible progress. I made this in Vanna's Colors: Seagrass. The yarn is well suited to the pattern as the variations and chunkiness add texture to the large cables. Fairly easy to make and goes really quickly. Turned out smaller than I expected. It is truly a throw and not an afghan.
