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.

Reasons to knit your own Comfy Cable Blanket

- Warm and cosy: Perfect to snuggle up when you are watching TV on the sofa. Keeps you warm on those chilly days.

- Chunky, handmade throw / blanket doubled up to use as a Decorative throw / runner on the bed or an arm chair.

- Soothing: a knit that takes a little thought but is actually easier than others will believe.
