Needlework: Knitted Cable Afghan in "Bone"

This afghan is knitted on circular needles, forming a cable every six rows. I have made several of these in a variety of colors for family members and am always pleased with the result.
Basically, for seasoned knitters, with about 48 ounces of worsted weight yarn, cast on 230 stitches using size 10 1/2 circular needles, work a seed stitch for six rows and then begin knitting six stitches and purling six stitches across the row, maintaining four seed stitches on each side. Twisting a cable stitch on the knit stitches every sixth row, continue the same until desired length is reached, ending with six rows of seed stitch. Happy knitting !

The pattern book containing these directions can be purchased on amazon.com Easy Afghans - Art. J16 - #0122 - Knit and Crochet Afghans Pattern Booklet - Coats and Clark (Paperback)

"I LOVE this and I especially LOVE it in this color". I think it looks richer in a solid color and how perfect is this neutral...

Beautiful and I love the color. It must be so awesome to be able to knit and make all sorts of cool things like that!

I also admit that while I've love to actually DO it, I don't have enough desire to learn it, I guess. So I'll just enjoy all that you do!

Thanks for linking up today.

That is a beautiful afghan!! I did a sweater for my grandson in that stitch, and really enjoyed the outcome! Thank you so much for the post and for the mushroom recipe! It looks delicious.

I learned to knit a long time ago just because I wanted to make a cable knit blanket. I made a dishcloth and then didn't do anything and now I don't know how to knit anymore- but this blanket makes me want to figure it out again. It's gorgeous!

This looks so cozy. I can just imagine myself on a frosty morn, sitting in front of a roaring fire, wrapped in this lovely afghan, sipping hot tea.

Thanks for linking to my party. I would love to have you join me for one, or all three, of my parties each week.
