Liza Throw Video Tutorial

In this video, I’ll teach you how to crochet the gorgeous braided cable stitch that I used to make the Liza Throw Blanket.  If you are new to cabled crochet stitches, don’t be intimidated!   This pattern is actually pretty simple once you get the hang of it.  It is also super repetitive – so if you love to crochet while watching tv, I know you will love this pattern!

Stitch Instructions:

Chain a multiple of 6 plus 3.

Row 1: SC in second ch from hook and in each remaining ch; CH3, turn.

Row 2: DC in each sc; CH1, turn.

Row 3: SC in each dc; CH3, turn.

Row 4: DC in first two sc; *skip next stitch;  FPtr around next two dc from the row below;  working in front of last two fptr made, FPtr around skipped dc (braid made). DC in next sc, FPtr around next dc from row below, DC in next sc.  Repeat from * to last 6 stitches; make one more braid and then DC in last 3 sc; CH1, turn.

Row 5: SC in each stitch; CH3, turn.

Row 6: DC in first two sc; *skip next stitch;  FPtr around next two fptr from the row below;  working in front of last two fptr made, FPtr around skipped fptr (braid made). DC in next sc, FPtr around next fptr from row below, DC in next sc.  Repeat from * to last 6 stitches; make one more braid and then DC in last 3 sc; CH1, turn.

Repeat rows 5 and 6 until your work measures desired length.

  1. Nice pattern! I’m curious what yarn you used for the blanket. It looks soft and cozy, which crochet doesn’t always give. Thanks!
