Welcome! We hope you join us and Creativebug in the Cabled Afghan Knit Along! Beginning on Wednesday, July 2, 2014, and every week after for 12 weeks we’ll post a new knit square pattern for the Knit Your Cables Afghan (LW4309). Each square has a companion video tutorial presented by Creativebug where designer Edie Eckman will show you tips on knitting the square. Edie’s daughter Margaret will join in here on the Red Heart blog.
Knit the squares along with us, and by the end you’ll have a completed afghan! Share your progress and ask questions on Facebook and Twitter. For every new square, we’ll select a winner for a prize package.
Ten cable squares and ten garter stitch squares make up the afghan. After you make all twenty squares, we have a border pattern for the entire afghan. You can put your squares together in a different order than we did or alter the pattern so you only have cabled squares and no garter stitch squares, for example. This is your afghan, so personalize it! At the end of the knit-along we’ll post the complete afghan pattern.
