11 Free Crochet Cables Patterns to Make

Crochet cables add interest and texture to your patterns. Don’t miss these 11 FREE designs from crochet bloggers! There are beanies, a sweater, headbands and other accessories, and home decor items.

Crochet cables are made using post stitches, which go around stitches in the row below instead of into stitches in the row below. Post stitches “pop out” from the fabric and allow for textures and designs to be made.
