Work in Progress: Cabled blanket

cablesI saw this pattern online and just had to try it.  This is my first try at crochet cables and I am liking it.  I may have messed up the center braid a bit but I don’t feel like backing up that far to redo it.  The pattern I am using is Sewrella’s Crochet Heirloom Cabled Throw, but instead of Lion Brand Thick and Quick I am using Bernat Roving and an 8mm hook so I added an extra double crochet between cables (3 instead of 2) to help make up for the size difference.  The center braid is the most confusing part but I think I am getting the hang of hit now.  Trying to read the pattern may make your brain melt, so I recommend watching and crocheting along with the video instead.

    I have gone through 6 of my 12 skeins of yarn now and it is a bit over twice the length it was in the photo now. Won’t be able to work on it today though since I am at the track to cover races at Woodbine today.
