Fall Feels CAL and Throw Blanket
The Fall Feels Crochet Along began on October 4th. Each Tuesday a new crochet blanket square is released with a written pattern and complete video tutorial. This crochet cabled blanket square is the last of the six square designs in the CAL and throw blanket. Next Tuesday, November 15th, the assembly and edging instructions will be available and we will wrap up our CAL over that next week.
The throw blanket crochet pattern includes six 8 inch squares. There are 8 of each square, which makes a finished blanket about 48 inches x 64 inches, or about 4 x 5 feet.
For all the details about the CAL and the links to all the square instructions, see this post about the Fall Feels CAL and Throw Blanket.
What if I’ve never crocheted cables before?
If you’ve never crocheted cables before, then this will be a challenge, but doable. You’ll want to start by learning what post stitches are, if those aren’t familiar to you. You can grab the post stitch guide by subscribing to my newsletter below. Or you can see a video tutorial about post stiches here.
The next task is to learn about reordering your stitches to get the twisting effect of cables. This basic tutorial shows you an easy cable. Also, there is a complete video tutorial below for the square that will show you everything you need to know to crochet this cabled square.

What supplies will I need to crochet this square?
You will need worsted weight yarn. I used Cascade Yarns Pacific in #13 Gold. It takes 3 skeins to make the 8 squares needed for the CAL and Fall Feels Throw Blanket, or about 75 yds to make just one square. The best place to purchase Cascade Yarns Pacific is from your local yarn shop (LYS). If they don’t have it in stock, but they carry Cascade Yarns, they can probably order it for you.
You will also need a size J (6 mm) crochet hook. I recommend Furls Streamline crochet hooks as they have an inline head and an ergonomic handle.
