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.
