Antique Rose Cabled Throw Blanket

August 11, 2022

I purchased some Turin yarn at Hobby Lobby while it was on clearance in Antique Rose. They only had 3 skeins and I bought them all. I had pinned this Chunky Cabled Throw from All About Ami and I've wanted to make it for a while. Antique Rose Cabled Throw Blanket

I started making the blanked and I assumed I'd just be able to get more yarn, even if it was at full price. Except that when I went online to look for it - it told me it was sold out and on clearance. Then the next day it was gone entirely. I googled for it and found that there were 5 skeins was available on Etsy from Carolynique. Initially when I put it in my cart the shipping was exhorbitant, but I messaged Carolynique and we worked out exact shipping which enabled me to finish.

I don't want to write a pattern because I mostly followed the one from All About Ami. I did want to make it longer so I modified it slightly. My pattern has 2 fp dc sections on either side instead of one to begin and I have 5 cable sections instead of 3. If you see a pattern you like, but its not quite what you had in mind - alter it. I wrote the pattern out on paper and then figured out how many stitches I needed to cast on with my updated pattern.

I had never done cabled before because I thought they'd be a little daunting, but it was so easy. It's basically just 3 repeating rows. All About Ami has amazing pictures with detailed instructions on how to do them.

I did change up the edging from the pattern. For my blanket I hdc one row around the edge. In the corners I did 2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc. For the second row I did hdc, ch 1, sk st all the way around (using the same corners as the last row). For the last row I did a picot. Initially I did a 3 ch picot, but I got to the last side and was going to run out of yarn (fail at yarn chicken). I really liked the way it look so I modified it to be a ch 2 picot and was able to finish with just a bit to spare. This took 8 skeins of the Turin yarn. I don't know if Hobby Lobby will bring it back, but the skeins were a super bulky 270 yards. I used a 10 mm hook for the whole thing.
