This is a beautiful throw. However, a lot of throw and blanket patterns like this one use thick blanket yarn, in this case Red Heart Grande which is a jumbo weight yarn. Because it's thick and you're making a big thing you need a lot of yarn. This pattern calls for 15 balls/skeins, which puts it outside of something that I could afford.

I do not understand what the directions mean for cable where it says read from left to right and right to left. I don't know what the ratingshould be as I haven't made the item

Hi deomeara 6348064, those instructions apply if you're using a chart to complete the cable portion of the pattern. The cable pattern can also be worked using the written instructions provided. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I just started learning how to knit and this blanket is my literal goal to complete some day!

This pattern is marked easy. I think it is a great starter project don't be intimidated by the cables they are fairly easy to do and striking in this pattern. I would practice the cables on some scrap yarn first but I think you totally should make this project even as a new knitter.
