Comfy Cable Blanket

New Paid Knitting Pattern



With this pattern you can create your own luxurious Cable Knit Throw. The Comfy Cable Throw has a thick hand knitted touch of luxury with a Wooly feel fabric. With my Irish heritage the language of cables has been inspiring over the years. I have even researched my own clan cable design, more on that in a future post. For now I'll share the symbology and meaning behind some of the cables I chosen for this blanket.


Rope Cable: This stitch symbolises the ropes the fishermen used, and symbolises the desire for luck and a wish for a fruitful fishing harvest. This pattern represents luck.


Ladder of Life: Purl or twist stitches worked to form the rungs of the ladder of life, against a plain background. It symbolises Health and Happiness.


Trellis: An intricate pattern of plain stitches worked to form a trellis effect over purl stitches. This stitch represents Success


Irish Moss Stitch: This stitch represents the seaweed spread over the barren fields to produce a good harvest.

The Pattern is now available in the shop for instant download.
