It was an American flag. He didn't even know that I was making it for him. I finished the weaving in, he knocked on the door of my hotel room (Long distance thing. Bound to end.), I tossed it under the mattress to hide it from him, then we sat down and had "The Talk". It was Christmas Eve.
I became a victim of The Sweater Curse. But with an afghan.
|"Cables Cubed Throw" from Caron International|
This one has the benefit of being made especially for me. There are no sad break up stories associated with it. No bad, broken heart juju attached to the fibers.
|45" X 60"|
I've been itching to make myself a cabled throw for quite a while, so you know that I'm in finished object bliss.
I must inform you that there are two versions of this pattern. The version that exists on Caron's website is different than the version you get as a free pattern from Michaels. You will get the same look regardless of which pattern you use, however, the braided cable is worked differently between the two patterns.
