This heirloom quality baby blanket was inspired by a desire to make a handsome cabled blanket that was a portable project, to work on anywhere! I choose to use cables that have a rather geometric effect, for a decidedly masculine look, though this could just as easily be a girls blanket as well.

This blanket is a great traveling project, since the sections are knit in strips. Use the colors shown, or switch it up for a baby girl or even a lap blanket. This patten could be easily converted into a larger blanket/afghan as well.

About 36” square (91.4 cm), after blocking.

Yarn: Berocco Comfort, a wonderful worsted nylon/acrylic blend chosen for its great stitch definition and easy care for new parents.
2 balls each of Color A # 9703 (off-white), Color B #9747 Cadet (med. Blue), Color C #9744 (sage green), Color D #9762 Spruce (dk. Green), 1 ball of Color E #9741 (dk. Brown) – each ball is 210 yds.
Needles: US size 8 (5.0 mm), adjust needle size if necessary to obtain gauge.
Notions: Cable needle, you may want to use stitch markers to distinguish between stitch patterns.

Note: Cable instructions are written, as well as in easy-to-read chart form, for whichever is your preference.
