Braided Cable Blanket

After a short crochet break. I am back to knitting.

I start out with this braided cable blanket think this is going to be tricky. But it was so easy to follow through and memorize. I also wanted to use some bright new colors for this one. The link for this free pattern is here.

I was so tempted to use random stripe generator for this one but then I realized I didn’t have enough of the lemon green yarn and couldn’t find it in any of the stores. So I started to reduce the color by a shade after every repeat. I think itΒ  looks really bright and refreshing. Love how the colors contrast each other (Thanks to my color coordinators).
