This rustic cable throw looks so warm and cozy. The rich color is beautiful and it would look right at home in a log cabin.

This pattern looks to be easy enough but I have a question. When working the edging, do I turn my work at the beginning of each round?

Such a beautiful Rustic Romance Cable Throw pattern. After reading the pattern it looks and read well. I love the cable pattern and this is a good size blanket. With the 4 row repeat it will go fast and a great way to relax in the evening. I can see this done in red.. Thank you for the free pattern.
