What is the Classic Cable Collection CAL?

If you’ve missed out on the fun so far, don’t wait any longer! We’re already in week three of this four-week CAL. However, you can still get all the crochet patterns, so it’s not too late. In this CAL, four crochet designers bring you a unique approach to crochet cables with new patterns and video tutorials. You get to join many other great crocheters who are learning/practicing these techniques together in each of our four respective Facebook groups.

We already worked crochet cables in the round with MJ’s Off the Hook to make her nesting baskets. And last week we learned Briana K Design’s unique Infinity Cables crochet technique to make a floor pouf. Next week, we’ll wrap up with my Bulky Crochet Cables Blanket. But first, we’ll join Hannah to learn C2C Crochet Cables.

C2C Crochet Cables Cross Pillow

We didn’t want to bring you basic crochet cables. Instead, we wanted to allow you to take those skills to the next level. This week that means combining corner-to-corner crochet with cables. We’ll use 3 intricate cables per panel to make four matching panels that we seam together to create a crochet pillow. You’ll insert a cushion pad to create the pillow. Then you’ll add a zipper to close it up.

You can adapt this pattern to basically any size. In fact, you can use the panels to make other projects, including crochet blankets and wall hangings. So, this is a very versatile design that you really don’t want to miss out on learning!

Materials for C2C Crochet Cables Pillow

The full pattern has all of the details, of course, but you’re going to need:

  • 9 skeins of Billow Yarn (see pattern for color info)
  • Size 5.5mm/I crochet hook

  • Cushion pad: 20 x 20in (50 x 50cm)
