This started out as a cable crochet blanket but has changed identities along the way.
There are three different panels here; a right cross cable, a left cross cable and one that I've named a bobble ladder. I've made six so far and they need to be pieced together with a crochet join.
The pattern for the cables is Lion Brands classic cable throw. The bobble ladder is my own pattern. I wanted more texture with a panel that fitted the twists of the cables hence the odd pieces of lifeline yarn.
I used Aran weight wool and 6mm knitted needles.
MB-make bobble. These are 5 stitch bobbles. For a tutorial Vogue knitting is the best.
