Creamy Cables Knit Throw Pattern

I have the ultimate cozy throw pattern for you guys! I saw a similar throw at Pottery Barn recently for over $150! Now, it was definitely a beautiful throw, but the simple design had me thinking that I could easily make one of my own for way less cost, and way more fun! The total cost of making this blanket came to just over $40 using Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky Yarn. And the end result was just and luxurious in my opinion.

If you are new to knitting with cables, this easy pattern is a great way to get some practice. And if you have never knit with cables, there are tons of online tutorials that demonstrate just how easy it is. My favourite site for learning new knitting techniques is Bluprint. They do charge for their classes, but I find they are top notch if you are looking to learn a new skill without the hassle of searching through youtube.


I have written out and posted the free pattern for this cozy cabled throw below on this page.

Here is what you will need to make this cozy cabled throw:

Continue to Finishing.

Finishing:

Cast off in pattern and weave in all loose ends.

Create 8 tassels in each colour and attach them evenly spaced to the blanket ends (one in each corner and then one halfway through each row of cables). 

To make the tassels, wrap yarn around a 6 inch long piece of cardboard ten times.  Thread a strand of yarn through the top and secure with a knot (A).  Snip through the ends at the bottom and tie another piece of yarn around the top approximately half and inch down (B).  Trim the ends so that they are even.  Use a crochet hook or yarn needle to pull yarn through the edge of the blanket and tie in a knot to secure the tassel.   Weave in the ends.

  1. Hi, Alnaar. I am making this throw. I made a mistake on one of my first set of cables and will be frogging. I notice that my stitches seem loose using a sz 13 US needle. I think I will be going down to an 11. On the yarn wrapper it says US 10 is the recommended size for this yarn. Going larger gives it a looser stitch and a nice look, I get that. But I think the 13 is kinda big for this yarn. My width was a lot wider than 37 inches. Hopefully the second attempt will be better. I love how yours looks.
