Timeless Cabled Throw Crochet Pattern

Free Patterns/ Home Decor

Its been a while since I posted a crochet throw/afghan pattern.  I’m not sure why, since blankets are my favourite thing to make! I love how they keep me warm while I work on them.  And we are always in need of more blankets to snuggle up under in our household.

This is a fun project for anyone who loves the look of cables.  The resulting blanket is not only beautiful to look at, but also super snuggly and warm.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this cabled throw below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

Timeless Cabled Throw Crochet Pattern

What you will need

Here is what you will need to make this blanket:

Measurements

Finished blanket measures: 33″ Wide X 59″ Long

Special Stitches:

Front Post Treble Crochet (FPtr): Yarn over 2 times, insert hook from front to back to front around the post of the corresponding stitch below, yarn over and pull up loop [yarn over, draw through two loops on hook] 3 times.

Front Post Double Crochet (FPdc): Yarn over, insert hook from front to back to front around post of corresponding stitch below, yarn over and pull up loop [yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook] 2 times.

Pattern:


Please don’t be intimidated by the many rows in the instructions.  Rows 1- 3 are only worked one time – and row 3 may look scary, but that is the most complicated row of the pattern and you only have to do it once.  I would recommend that before you start working on the blanket, to try out the pattern on a smaller swatch.   As well, I have created a video tutorial for a similar (but not exactly the same) stitch that I used to create the Crochet Cabled Throw Pillow Pattern.  This video tutorial should make you much more comfortable with crocheting cables.

If you would like to make this blanket larger or smaller, you can chain a multiple of 14 plus 15.

Chain 85.

Row 1 (RS): HDC in third chain from hook and in each remaining chain. CH2 (counts as first hdc of following row) and turn.

Row 2: HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 3: HDC in next 3 hdc,  *skip next 3 hdc, work FPtr around each hdc one row below the next 3 hdc (Row 1); working in front of the 3 FPtr just made, work FPtr around each hdc one row below the 3 skipped hdc (this will form the twisty part of the cable); HDC in next 3 hdc, FPdc around each hdc one row below next 2 hdc, HDC in next 3 hdc; repeat from * until the last 10 stitches.  Skip next 3 hdc, work FPtr around hdc one row below next 3 hdc; working in front of the 3 FPtr just made, work FPtr around hdc one row below the 3 skipped hdc; HDC in next 4 hdc.  CH2 and turn.

Row 4:  HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 5:  HDC in next 3 hdc, *work FPdc around next 6 FPtr, HDC in next 3 hdc, FPdc around next 2 FPdc, HDC in next 3 hdc; repeat from * until the last 10 stitches.  Work FPdc around next 6 FPtr, HDC in next 4 hdc.  CH2 and turn.

Row 6:  HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 7:  HDC in next 3 hdc, *work FPdc around next 6 FPdc,HDC in next 3 hdc, FPdc around next 2 FPdc, HDC in next 3 hdc; repeat from * until the last 10 stitches.  Work FPdc around next 6 FPdc, HDC in next 4 hdc.  CH2 and turn.

Row 8:  HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 9: HDC in next 3 hdc, *skip next 3 FPdc, work FPtr around next 3 FPdc; working in front of FPtr just made, work FPtr around each skipped FPdc; HDC in next 3 hdc, FPdc around next 2 FPdc, HDC in next 3 hdc; repeat from * until the last 10 stitches.  Skip next 3 FPdc, work FPtr around next 3 FPdc; working in front of FPtr just made, work FPtr around each skipped FPdc; HDC in next 4 hdc.  CH2 and turn.

Repeat rows 4-9 until your work measures approximately 57 inches (or desired length).  Work one last row of only HDC before starting the border.

Border and Finishing:


Work 1 round around the border of the blanket evenly in single crochet.  Make sure that you do 3 SC in each corner of the blanket (or your edges will be too tight and curl inwards).  When working down the sides, work one loose SC in each ch2 space.

Once you have completed one round of single crochet, join with a slip stitch and work one round of HDC in each SC (making sure to work 3 HDC in each corner to keep edges from curling in).  Join with a slip stitch, fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

This year I have decided to stay ahead of the holidays. I’ve been shopping for presents and collecting random decor items so that when the fun times arrive, I can actually sit back and enjoy the season. I love having a beautiful table setting, so I decided to make my own potholders in festive colours.

If the stitch looks familiar to you, that’s because its the bumpy rows stitch that I used in the Cozy and Free Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern.  The moment I discovered this stitch, I thought it would make a wonderful potholder stitch because of the bumpy and dense fabric it creates –  perfect to protect your table and so pretty to look at too!

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this potholder below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

Decorative Potholder Crochet Pattern

What you will need

Here is what you will need to make these potholders:

Measurements

Each potholder measures 8″ X 8″

Pattern


Chain 34 (or a multiple of 4 + 2).

Row 1: SC in second chain from hook and in each remaining chain; CH 2, turn.

Row 2: 3 DC in first sc;  *Skip next 3 sc, (SC, 3DC) in next sc; repeat from * to last 4 stitches, skip 3 sc, SC in last sc; CH 2, turn.

Row 3: 3 DC in first sc; *Skip next 3 dc, (SC, 3DC) in next sc; repeat from * to last sc; SC in top of turning chain; CH2, turn.

Repeat row 2 until your work measures 7 inches (should look square) and continue on to border.

Border:


Work 2 rounds around the border of the potholder evenly in single crochet.  Make sure that you do 3 SC in each corner of the border (or your edges will be too tight and curl inwards).  If you don’t know how to do a single crochet border, this wonderful article explains it in detail.

When you have completed two rounds,  work a slip stitch into the next stitch and chain 20.  Secure back into the same stitch with a slip stitch to create the hook.  Fasten off and weave in the ends!

Harry Potter Hogwarts Gryffindor Scarf Pattern

Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you purchase through those links.  I use all of the products listed below and recommend them because they are companies that I have found helpful and trustworthy. Please let me know if you have any questions about anything listed below!

My daughter is super obsessed with Harry Potter right now.  With halloween coming up, you can probably guess that her costume choice this year is to dress up as Hermione Granger – Harry’s super smart bestie. I was thrilled to hear this because it gave me the opportunity to make her, her very own Gryffindor scarf and share the pattern with you!

The yarn that I chose to work with is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in the colours Caution and Cranberry.  These are the closest matching yarn colours I could find to the actual Gryffindor House colours, and I love the stitch definition and durability of this yarn.

Lowest prices on the best yarn - guaranteed at knitpicks.com

I decided to use circular needles and work the pattern as a long tube for a few reasons. First, it would make the scarf extra thick and warm for our very cold Canadian winters. Second, stockinette stitch tends to curl on the ends, so making the scarf this way helps it lay flat.  And last, you get to knit all of the stitches without having to switch to purls when you turn your work.

Harry Potter Hogwarts Gryffindor Scarf Pattern

Here is what you will need to make this scarf:

Gauge

4.5 stitches = 1 Inch in stockinette stitch

Measurements:

7.5 ” Wide X 64″ Long


Pattern

This scarf is worked in the round to create a very long tube.

Using circular needles and Colour A, cast on 70 Stitches.  Place the stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round and join being careful not to twist your work.

Work in stockinette stitch (knit all stitches) for 20 rounds.

Switch to Colour B and work 20 more rounds in stockinette stitch.

Continue this pattern (alternating 20 rounds of colour A and colour B) until you have 10 blocks of Colour A and 9 Blocks of Colour B.

Finishing

Cast off your stitches and lay the scarf flat to block (you don’t have to block your scarf, but it can make the stitches look more even).  Sew up the two open ends.

Attach tassels to each end in alternating colours.  For each tassel, cut three pieces of yarn (about 10-12 inches long), fold in half and loop through scarf edge with a crochet hook.  See image below:

Its finally Fall, and I am so excited for another season of sharing cozy knitting patterns to keep you warm all winter long!  I thought I’d start off the season with this adorable quick to knit winter hat.  Of course its perfect for fall too -especially up here in Canada where it gets chilly very quickly!

I used exactly one hank of  Knit Picks Biggo Yarn to make this hat.  This yarn is the squishiest, softest bulky yarn I have yet to find.  And its also made of nylon, which makes it durable too!  Its a dream to knit with – I just know you will love it!

This is now my favourite hat.  Hockey season has started for us (I have two kids and one hubby who play), and I’m pumped to wear this cozy baby to the next practice.  I know it’ll keep me warm when they decide not to turn the heat lamps on!

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this hat below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

My Go To Yarns

Resources / How To

Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you purchase through those links.  I use all of the products listed below and recommend them because they are companies that I have found helpful and trustworthy. Please let me know if you have any questions about anything listed below!


My yarn collection has gotten a little out of control lately, so I thought I’d sit down and finally organize my stash.  After donating about half of it,  I realized that there were certain yarns that I couldn’t part with – and then I went online and purchased more of it.  I seriously have a problem, I know.  That was when the idea came to me that I should share a listing of my favourite yarns and why I love them so much (along with corresponding free patterns to try) with my amazing followers – whom I predict are much like me and always looking to add to their stash!

 

1. Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky

Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky is one of my go to yarns for anything that I plan to make for children.  Not only does it come in a huge range of colours, but its so incredibly soft, yet durable.   I like that this yarn is acrylic and machine washable.  Another benefit of acrylic yarn is that it is a great option for anyone with wool allergies – and when making things for children its always best to be on the safe side.

I use Simply Chunky when making toys like my Free Crochet Teddy Bear pattern as well as for baby blankets like the Easy Knit Baby Blanket pattern that I posted a couple of weeks ago on this blog.

 

2. Knit Picks Dishie Yarn

In my opinion, this is by far the best cotton yarn for making absorbent wash and dish cloths.  Its an added bonus that the yarn is worsted weight and works up quickly.  The colours are simply gorgeous and the quality is the best I have seen for a cotton yarn in this price range.  I used this yarn in my Free Crochet Washcloth pattern and plan to post a knit dish towel pattern very soon using the same yarn (so check back soon for the free pattern)!

 

3. Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Bulky Yarn

First of all, the colour palette for this yarn is to die for!  I think I’m in love with every single colour that this yarn comes in.  Mighty Stitch Bulky is 80% acrylic and 20% super wash wool, and luxuriously soft against your skin.   That is why I love it for winter accessories like mittens, scarves and hats.   Just try this yarn with my Chunky Cabled Knit Cowl Pattern and I know you will be hooked!

 

4.  Cascade Cherub DK

I love this light weight DK weight yarn for baby knitting and crochet because it is machine washable and incredibly soft – and since it is made up of nylon and acrylic, its great for sensitive skin.  It is a lighter weight yarn, which makes it ideal for spring and summertime projects as well.  You can try Cherub DK out with my Crochet Heirloom Baby Blanket pattern posted for free on this blog.

 

5.Berroco Comfort Worsted Weight Yarn

Another favourite of mine for amigurumi and toy making, Berroco Comfort Worsted Weight Yarn is an acrylic, nylon blend that is perfect for sensitive skin.  I’m so happy with the durability of this yarn.  The first time I worked with it, I made a stuffy for my daughter a couple of years ago that still looks as good as the day it was made (and she sleeps with it almost every night!).  I have featured Berocco Comfort in the following free projects on this site: Free Crochet Bunny PatternBobbles and Stripes Crochet Baby BlanketPattern, Baby Chick Crochet Pattern, and Free Crochet Puppy Pattern.

 

6.James C Brett Chunky with Merino

James C Brett Chunky with Merino is a really soft, snuggly, warm yarn that is my go to for thick winter knits.  I love that it is machine washable and have made baby blankets like the Cozy and Free Baby Blanket with this yarn.  To be honest, the thing that sold me on Chunky with Merino was the price when I first tried it out.  I love Merino, but it can get very pricy for larger projects like blankets and throws, so I purchased a few skeins based on the price to see if this would be a decent option and I’ve been going back to it ever since!

 

7.Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Yarn

This is the worsted weight version of #3 above (Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Bulky Yarn), and I love it for all of the same reasons.  The softness and colour palette is ideal for baby and children knitting/crochet.  It is not as thick as the chunky version, which makes this yarn perfect for springtime projects as well as home decor.  I’ve even knit up a pair leg warmers with Mighty Stitch and the drape and softness of the yarn was just perfect!

 

8.Knit Picks Swish Worsted Weight Yarn

I’m a huge fan of Knit Picks if you haven’t already noticed from this list!  Swish is truly a luxury to knit with as it is 100% superwash Merino Wool.   I prefer this yarn for winter accessories and have really enjoyed making mittens and beanies like the Free Toddler Beanie Knitting Pattern with it.

And that is it for my list of my go to yarns!  I’d love to hear from you on which yarns you love and why in the comments below!

Favourite Crochet Washcloth

I am so excited to share my favourite washcloth pattern with you all, because I just know you will fall in love with it too!  If you are new to crochet or looking for something simple and quick, these washcloths will make your day.  The pattern I came up with is really easy and creates a scrunchy fabric that is just perfect for cleaning and looks absolutely gorgeous in your home or as a gift.

Ever since I started making my own washcloths, my kids refuse to go back to store bought washcloths for bath time.  They insist that these are more absorbent and I think they also like that they were hand made with love by their mama just for them!

The key to creating these luxurious washcloths is the yarn.  My absolute favourite cotton yarn is Knit Picks Dishie Yarn.  The colours are so lovely and the quality is incredible for the price.

I’ve had a few requests for an easy knit baby blanket pattern. Baby blankets are so much fun to knit and its even better when you don’t have to think too much. One of my favourite things to do is listen to a podcast while I knit, and not have to worry too much about making a mistake if I’m not paying close attention. This pattern is perfect for that sort of thing. You do have to concentrate for the first few rows, but once you get into a rhythm, you can pretty much just knit on autopilot!

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

I used  Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky acrylic yarn to make this baby blanket.  I love this yarn when knitting for children because it is acrylic and therefore machine washable and durable. Its also super soft and just so gorgeous that you wouldn’t believe its also a great price!
