Knitted Cable Blanket

One of my favorite knitted blanket patterns, especially when using Bernat Blanket Yarn.

What you will need:

  • 10.5 circular needles
  • Cable needle of same size
  • 5 balls of Bernat Blanket Yarn (I’m using Sailors Delight color for the one pictured)

Stitches and abbreviations:

  • k = knit
  • p = perl
  • ss = seed stitch (k1,p1)

Work rows back and forth as you would on strait needles, do not connect into a circle, you are only using circular needles for the length.
