Wrap yourself in this squishy, cozy, stylish afghan. A single repeated chart creates the intriguing hexagonal cabling against a reverse stockinette stitch background, providing enough visual interest and skill challenge to be engaging to both those making and enjoying it, but without overwhelming. A Provisional I-cord Cast On is continued on both sides as you go before being finished with a I-Cord Bind Off, creating a tidy edge all around. While the throw is big enough to suit most any use, the bulky yarn will knit up quicker than you think.

This pattern includes both written instructions and full charts.

Sl first 4 sts of every row, NOT the first and last 4 sts of every RS row according to the chart.

Rows 1 & 5 should read: Sl 4, P8, 2/2LC, 2/2RC, P8, rep from * to last 4 sts, K4.

Row 24: There are two P on RS/ K on WS stitches missing from chart at stitch 19 & 35.

There is a cable missing from the chart and written instructions on Row 27: Sl4 WYIB, P4, K2, P12, 2/2LC, P12; rep from * to last 10 sts, K2, P4, K4.
