This pattern is amazing! I have not done anything with cables, which makes me a little nervous to try this out. I would definitely make this in any school colors, or in lighter shades for a baby blanket. I will have to try this out and see if I can figure out the cables, but I will be trying! Thank you!

I would love to make this afghan but the directions have me confused. I get lost after row 4. I don't follow the meaning of the following 5th to 10th rows incl Repeat 1st and 2nd rows alternately. Repeat 3rd to 10th rows incl until piece measures 3 inches, ending with the 4th row Also, is the strip only going to be 3 inches wide?

Hi margelemire 1938863, each strip is knitted from the narrow edge (51 stitches wide, should be about 6" or so) along the length. There is a typo in the pattern instead of "Repeat 3rd to 10th rows incl until piece measures 3 inches" it should say "63 inches". No wonder you were confused! Your other question, about the rows 5th to 10th rows are just repeats of the 1st and 2nd rows (3 sets of repeats). Then for the rest of the strip you repeat rows 3 through 10 over and over until it's 63 inches long. Does that help?

This throw has a nice classic look to it. It reminds me of going to college. I think I'd knit this in school colors for anyone special who's off to their first year at college.
