Cuddle Baby Cables Blanket

I am in mommy heaven right now with the arrival of our new daughter Adeline Jane! (Doesn't she look so precious all bundled up?) I have been soaking up all the newborn snuggles in my recliner while I blissfully crochet away. I don't usually make blankets but I thought I would whip up a pattern for something a little more simple and elegant to go with the style we are using for our sweet little one. I am quite pleased with how it turned out and I hope you will enjoy some snuggles with this soft, old fashioned take on a baby blanket. 

This is not the best pattern to use for your first cables project as the descriptions are brief and assume you already generally know how to work cables.  All cable stitches are worked into the fpdc stitches beneath the previous row (you will skip the the stitches in the row of SC worked between each of the cable stitch rows). When working the cables make sure to keep a loose tension to keep the blanket from bunching up.

Although it is only noted in the first two rows, each row has 110 stitches.

There is no border included in this pattern but I would suggest something simple like reverse SC if you wish to add one. My blanket was 30”x32” before adding a border. Get the pdf version of this pattern by clicking the link below.
