'Cables' remind me of Aran jumpers I wore as a child that were knitted by loving relatives (nothing shows love like a hand-knitted jumper ;)
So, today, I crocheted a cable pattern...
This pattern is called 'Olivia Cable' and came from a book I had for Christmas called 'Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia' by Robyn Chachula.
This book is jam-packed full of great stitch patterns and has both written instructions and stitch diagrams. I look forward to dipping into it for more complex, textured, stitch patterns. I didn't enjoy making this swatch as much as I did yesterday's green one. I think knitted cables are 'smoother' and the repeat was quite complex, involving crossed over FPdc stitches (USA term). I'm up for some freeform crochet tomorrow ;0
