I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new.

I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

The cable stitch is a gorgeous technique

Indisputably, it is useful for making projects that have a richly textured, ridged surface that s wonderful to touch. However, it may be a bit much for beginners. Thus, here are some easier projects that achieve a similar effect and produce a textured baby blanket  equally  beautiful, yet easy at the same time. Although they look difficult, these patterns are definitely a great way to introduce yourself to cable-stitch projects. Indeed, why stop there?
