"Braided Cables Square is a great project for those who would like to dip their toes in the world of Tunisian crochet cables. The repetitive pattern allows for sufficient practise of the technique creating a beautiful texture reminiscent of braided hairstyles. The Cables Square is worked flat, RS facing from right to left. The stitch count refers to the number of lps on hook on FP. There are 3 cable st patterns running in parallel with sts being crossed in the same row every 2nd row. Work tks sts in rows where sts cross over slightly looser otherwise the cables will look flat and stretched. "

It is perfect for those cozy nights on the couch! The Parker Cozy Blanket is great for every level of crocheter because it has a wonderful rhythm to the stitching that lets you really get in a groove and will fly off your hook!
