I designed nine different cable blocks. Each block consists of a garter stitch border and flanked by a simple cable to the main cable design.
The squares are knit with Lana Grande a wonderfully soft and chunky yarn from Cascade yarn. I chose to use two colors from this line Irish oatmeal and Beige and I also used US size 15 needles, which make the knitting go really quickly. The border for the afghan is a simple cable design, it is knit separately and sew on to the completed afghan.
