This afghan is beautiful! I love the combination of cables on one side and lace on the other. I have looked at several different cabled patterns, but I have yet to make one. I think I am hesitant because it seems more difficult than regular knitting. Does anyone have any suggestions for overcoming this hesitation? I would love to make this afghan!

I am making this Afghan and it is lovely, BUT although my gauge is exact for the size small, and I bought a little more yarn than the pattern requires for that size, I measured what I had completed so far when I finished my first skein, and although the width was correct, the length was NOT! It would have been about 40" long instead of 59.41"! Fortunately I was able to buy more of my yarn in the same dye lot. I needed 5 additional skeins. So my advice is to buy several more skeins that you think you will need according to the pattern. You can always return them. (Check store's/website's return policy and keep your receipt!) added note- I used a different yarn- not the Lion Brand Homespun. I could not find my color in it.

This is one of the few afghan patterns I've seen that not only gives you stitch counts for smaller sizes, like a throw or baby blanket, but also larger sizes. The extra large size for this one would fit a queen size bed! If you have the time and dedication you can make something lovely for any bedroom.

I love the way Lion Brand Homespun yarn knits up. Its bulky weight and use of big needles is sure to make a big project go quickly. And when you are finished its lovely and snuggly. I really like that this pattern has options and yardage for creating the afghan all the way from a whopping 8.5 feet by 6.3 feet down to crib size and several sizes in between. This would be the perfect gift for a newlywed couple or to send with a child headed for college. Thanks for sharing the pattern.
