Afghan Crochet Patterns
Plus a Free BONUS Cables Scarf Pattern from Kim Guzman
Not only are they glamorous and gorgeous, but the multitude of
designs and patterns created with cables are simply captivating.
AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns compiled this roundup of cables and says, “I just love the texture…. Where as lace patterns create a unique design with their use of negative space, cabled patterns jump from the surface. ” Looking at these afghans, it’s easy to see what they are talking about. These designs are so subtle, yet very dramatic.
Sometimes it is nice to work up a slightly smaller project like the
Tunisian Mock Cable Scarf by Kim Guzman. She is a magnificent teacher and she has a way of making you feel comfortable and at home when you are trying something new. Kim says,
“I fell in love with cables a few years ago when I saw many knit cables on the runway featuring huge chunky cables. I *love* them and the bigger, the better. Because of my love for these cables, I developed a technique to make them in Tunisian crochet and wrote a book filled with projects in the technique. I also designed a project exclusively for Knit & Crochet TV on PBS and you can find the free pattern and my video tutorial for it on my blog.”
