Afghan is worked in five panels – two 3-Cable panels edged with
Popcorn edging, and three 1-Cable panels edged with Reverse
single crochet. Cable Panels are worked vertically, edging on all
panel is worked from side to side.

It is important that all Cable panels be worked the same number of
rows; place a marker at even intervals while working, to help keep
track of rows and to help pick up the correct number of sts evenly for the edging.
