KAL Annie MaloneyCable Factor Sampler Throw, join a KAL at Ravelry featuring several stitch patterns from the Cable Factor pdf series. “This KAL is for a pieced, richly cabled throw, of the sampler variety. The stitch patterns are from The Cable Factor Series stitch collections. There are opportunities for variations in the finished size, by using fewer blocks than given, or a different weight of yarn. If using all of the blocks as in the sample, the full throw in light worsted weight measures 48” x 60”, and uses almost 3000 yards, on 4.5mm / US7 needles.”

From the author…
“This collection consists of cable stitch patterns that have mirrored sides; for example, a left-crossing cable on one side is mirrored by a right-crossing cable in the corresponding position on the other side. The center treatment is a challenging aspect of designing this type of pattern, because if stitches are crossed in a specific direction, it negates the fact that the patterning is mirrored everywhere else.

There are four methods used in the cable designs:

  • Bring the cable units together, and separate them without crossing them;
  • The Cluster Stitch, in which the stitches are wrapped with the working yarn rather than crossed;
  • Knotted Cables, where the cables are crossed either to the right or left, behind the knot itself, so a definite direction is not apparent;
  • Mirrored panels, intended to be used on either side of a central panel or opening.”

NOTE: stitch patterns have both charts and written instructions.
