Needlework: Patriotic Cable Afghan

 Please join my list of Linky and Google friends when you visit my blog!
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.

For this particular afghan I used "Caron One Pound" yarn in red, white and blue and used all 16 ozs. of each color.  The finished afghan is approximately 54"x 65".

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