"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

The Easy Cable Knit Blanket Pattern is the perfect pattern to practice your cable knitting skills while also making something beautiful for your home. This easy knitting pattern uses alternating stripes of seed stitch and cabled design to create a knit blanket with the ultimate great texture and look.
You will love to cuddle under the warmth of this blanket next to the fire on chilly nights. You’ll never want to leave your couch! Pick your favorite yarn color, whether solid or variegated, and get making this pattern today. This pattern is very flexible, so even if you aren't familiar with cable knitting or seed stitch, learning this pattern and adjusting it to your skill level is very easy to do.
Although the cabling might seem difficult, it's a common misconception that cables require a lot of work. Once you've tried a few twists, this pattern is very easy to do, and the stitches themselves will become relaxing.

I don't have much experience with cabling but this lovely blanket pattern looks like something that I could do. The finished size is a good size, bigger than a throw but very doable. The mint green is pretty but I'm sure it would look good in almost any solid color.
