I've made this and it's lovely. The pattern is very well written and it makes up quickly, despite the intricacies. The only thing to be aware of is that it's shorter than you might like, so you may want to make it longer than the pattern calls for.

This is truly a Heavenly Holiday Cables Throw! I just love the color and to put my skills to the test with the different stitches used in this. I have this one on my "Must make" list! I feel this one can be a family heirloom. It's just beautiful! Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

I love the color. It's very rare that you see a red throw or afghan but this is for Christmas so okay, let's do it. It helps indeed that the pattern is just right on the same page. Thanks.

Another one for my to-do list. Perfect for the holidays!

Just finished! But this is only my "practice" afghan. Now I'm starting my "perfect" afghan that I will enter in the county fair. Difficult, but BEAUTIFUL ! ! !

Such a pretty afghan...trying to make it. I'm stuck on row 3. I see that the pattern says the free loops are the 2 in the front when it is turned. I'm not seeing what they are talking about.

In one direction you crochet in the back loop and when you turn your work then you crochet in the front loops. Basically you will be crocheting in the same row using front and back loops.
