Crochet Cable Blankets

First time i saw the cable stitch, i was so sure it was knitting. I had no idea crochet hooks could make such a thing.

I will not lie, they are beautiful. Crochet cables give the crochet project a different professional finished look if you ask me. So look through the shared crochet cable blanket patterns and see which one you like, and get to working.

Materials For Crochet Cable Blanket

Working a blanket is not as different from other projects. However, you want to make sure to pick the correct yarn since the blanket will be in use for a very long time.


The pattern will tell you what yarn you are to use for your crochet afghan. What is more common is the worsted weight yarn. This yarn works up fairly fast and is thicker than some yarns which means it promises warmth. When making a blanket, you want it to be nice and warm. Shop some worsted weight yarn HERE.

Crochet hooks

Again, the pattern will specify the crochet hook size you need in order to make your crochet cable blanket.

If you are in the market for new crochet hooks, you might want to consider furls crochet hooks. They are gorgeous.


Finally, be sure to have the following crochet supplies at hand

  • Yarn needle- to weave in the ends after you are done crocheting your cable blanket
  • Stitch markers- because the crochet cables can be a little confusing at times
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors…etc

How to use a crochet cable blanket

The blanket doees not entirely have to serve the purpose. LOL

It can serve multiple purposes if you think about it.

If you are looking to add some more style to your house, then you can have the crochet blanket on the couch to bring a different look to your living room.

You can have the crochet blanket as a throw for movie time, or crochet time to keep the legs warm. Or, it can be a blanket for bed time.

It sure does make the perfect gift too.

Crochet Blanket Stitches

When it comes to stitches used to make a cable blanket, then you should be familiar with:

  • Double crochet
  • half double crochet
  • treble crochet

These are not completely beginner friendly stitches. However, if you are considering making a crochet cable blanket, i would definitely not recommend this for beginners. But if you learn very fast, give it a go.

Can I Crochet A Cable Blanket As A Beginner?

Yes and NO.

No because crochet cables can drive a human crazy. I know it nearly drove me crazy, till now i barely attempt cable projects. But my fears should not be yours..

I never gave cables enough time to master them, so do not listen to me. If you are a fast learner, watch a few crochet cable tutorials and be on your way.

Commonly Asked Questions

How do you make crochet cables?

They’re made by skipping a set of stitches (usually two or three, depending on the stitch width of the cable), then crossing front and back post stitches to create that twisted effect. So once you get the hang of it, it’s actually pretty fun to make.

Do Cables Use More Yarn?

Cabled fabric is denser so it does require a bit more yarn. So be sure to stash a bit more yarn for your crochet cable projects.

Is Cable Stitches Hard?

Yes and No.

Depending on the type of crochet cables you are trying to make, it may be hard or easy. But if you are a quick learner, then the cable stitch should be easy peasy for you.
