Beautiful cables
I haven't finished yet but am enjoying the beautiful cable pattern of this blanket. The pattern is simple to follow, and adjusts well to a different yarn (I'm using pure wool) and hook size to suit. Review by Elle (Posted on 10/11/2015)
A Beautiful Blanket
I made this blanket for my nephew. The pattern was very easy to follow and very well written. The blanket is beautiful and the detail is gorgeous. I will make this one again. Review by Lisa (Posted on 3/17/2015)
Beautiful Pattern!
I bought this pattern quite awhile ago and thought I did it right and was so proud of myself being a fairly new crocheter. Come to find out I had no idea what I was doing at all! A few months later I decided to conquer it by doubling the pattern and making it into a huge afghan which turned out so beautiful! Worked up easy without having to refer to the pattern after the first few rows. Cannot wait to give it as a Christmas gift! Review by Heather (Posted on 11/11/2014)
Need to change the description of the kit
What a beautiful blanket. I do think the description of the kit should be changed, just cause it's made with blue yarn doesn't mean it should only be for baby boys. What about stating a blue blanket for babies? Let the customers decide who they would make it for. It seems like a small issue, but challenging gender norms to raise a healthy society starts with mothers and grandmothers. My daughter loves blue. Review by Jackie (Posted on 10/18/2014)
Figured it out!
I frogged this project 4 or 5 times. I think I have it figured out. In the skipping three stitches and then going back to work in the skipped three stitches, sometimes you work in FRONT of the stitches and sometimes you work BEHIND the stitches. The video is for working behind the stitches. Working in front is pretty easy. Also, in working those three skipped stitches, you work the first one you skipped first, in that order. Having these things explained in the pattern would have been helpful for a relative newbie like myself. Review by Teresa (Posted on 10/2/2014)
Beautiful Blanket
Made this in beige with brown edging for my new grandson. I had used the cable stitch a few years ago on mufflers I crocheted for my husband and sons, so this was easy to pick up again. The directions were very clear and it was a satisfying and beautiful project. My "knitter" friend could not believe this was all crocheted! Review by Dedi (Posted on 8/18/2014)
Encouragement for Cable Crochet
Although I haven't purchased this pattern yet I have done numerous projects in crochet cable. I would like to encourage those who are trying this afghan and having difficulty. With any cable it takes several rows for the pattern to start to look as it should. To make the post in front, you do place your hook from front to back around the indicated stitch. Likewise with a back post you place your hook from back to front around the stitch indicated. Good luck! Review by Jacqueline (Posted on 5/15/2014)
Gorgeous!
I made this into a large afghan by repeating the lattice and the braid another time. It is amazing! I was so grateful for the explanatory tutorial. Once I grasped what it meant to work behind the other stitches there was no problem. I did find this youtube demonstration today also for those who are more visual--http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vWJMKlVofM. Thank you for the beautiful pattern--definitely worth purchasing.

Great Project
I waited too long to order this pattern. I'm so pleased with the results. The instructions are easy to follow. Some experience with FP and BP crochet stitches is helpful, but with do-diligence you will be able to work these stitches even if you are a beginner.
I'll be making more of these. I'm working on an even larger version of this blanket.

Beautiful Pattern
It did take me awhile to figure out the pattern. I will admit that I did frog my work a few times. But, after going recounting and moving on, I figured out that I was doing it correctly all the while. It does take a number of rows before you see the pattern developing in your work. Once you have your correct pattern established, it is much easier to see how the entire thing works together. The finished product was beautiful! Review by Laura (Posted on 2/21/2014)
Love it
I have to admit that it took me a couple rows of screwing up to get this pattern right but I love it. I used a 6.5 mm hook and made it 6 feet long and used a arrow and diamond pattern to make side panels and now I have a awesome blanket for my bed. Once I got used to the pattern I wrote it in very short form so I could just peek to see what to do next instead of reading through the whole row each time. Review by tayer22 (Posted on 12/30/2013)

Beautiful
There are many tutorials online - especially check youtube for a video of front and back post crochet. It is tricky at first, but you will find it very easy once you learn it. Good luck! Review by Deanna (Posted on 11/17/2013)
Great Pattern!
Once I got the hang of switching front post to back post, the pattern was quick and easy. I am in the process of making two more! Review by Vikki (Posted on 10/21/2013)
Maddening
There is a post on Ravelry that there is going to be more tutorial on this pattern. I am wondering if there is going to more than just the FPdc tutorial. I have tried unsuccessfully many times to get this project going and cannot get past tow 4. Even getting past row 4, I sop and look at it and it doesn't look right. Any advice from anyone would be helpful. THANK YOU. Review by Steven (Posted on 10/14/2013)
cant get the pattern
I love this blanket I would love to make it I just can not get how this pattern is done. could you make a video showing how to do this pattern? Review by michelle (Posted on 10/11/2013)
I am an idiot
I have tried and tried and tried to make this blanket, but I can't figure out how to do a FPdc or FPtr while holding the crochet hook behind the work. My brain says it should be a BPdc or BPtr. I am about ready to give-up. It would be extremely helpful for a diagram of exactly how to hold the hook. I'm quite upset because it's such a beautiful pattern and I really would like to make it. **INTERWEAVE RESPONSE** Thank you for your feedback. We have gone back to look at the pattern, and yes, it is correct. However, you are not the first person to have difficulty with this technique. We are going to post a video tutorial on CrochetMe demonstrating how this can be done. Please keep a look out. And thank you again. Review by Deborah Horton (Posted on 3/25/2011)
This makes a great afghan.....
Instead of making a baby blanket I just increase it by adding additional lattice panel. I get compliments all the time and everyone wants me to make them one. This is a great project to make while watching TV and keep in warm in the winter. Review by Sharon Wicks (Posted on 8/31/2010)
