Crochet Cables

I love crochet cables. Actually, I love the whole effect of crocheted aran. I think I am going to be doing a lot more of it very soon.

Yes, it takes up a lot more yarn than regular crochet but it creates a thick and warm fabric - perfect for chilly autumn days. And just as perfect for fresh spring days!

To ease you in gradually, I have two new patterns which are quick and easy to make.

This is the Chunky version.

2 balls Sirdar Click (chunky), 1 for the headband and 1 for the mitts.

6.00mm hook and a needle for sewing in ends.

Tension (UK terms)
9 htr and 7 rows to 8 cm

And this is the Aran version.

1 balls Cygnet Aran.

4.00mm hook and a needle for sewing in ends.

Tension (UK terms)
11 htr and 9 rows to 8 cm

They are £1.50 each or both for £2.50. The Chunky version is finished and the Aran version is available for pre-order. It will be finished just as soon as I can get hold of a model. Its a bit difficult when they are in school all day and the light isn't so good by the time they get home!
