Have you ever wanted to try crochet cables? Today’s pattern is going to teach you everything you need to know to make your very first beginner crochet cable blanket.
It’s only a fairly simple 2 row repeat and don’t take so much yarn like other cable blankets. It’s so easy that even a beginner can easily make it and it’s also a simple way to take your crochet skills to the next level!
