Classic Cable Collection CAL

Do you love crochet cables? Or do you want to learn more about them? Either way, you’re in for a treat with the Classic Cable Collection CAL. I’m thrilled to have teamed up with three of my favorite crochet designer friends to bring you this crochet-along featuring fun designs that use crochet cables in innovative ways. The CAL starts May 2, 2022. All the patterns are now available, but each week one of us designers will lead that week’s portion of the CAL. By the month’s end, you’ll have upped your crochet cable game.

NOTE: The patterns are free online now. However, you get perks if you purchase the associated eBook, so don’t delay!

What Is The Classic Cable Collection CAL?

This is a four-week crochet-along that comes with an exclusive eBook of crochet cable pattern downloads. Each week, one of four designers will share their pattern, offering new ways to work with crochet cables.

This CAL provides a great opportunity to:

  • Expand your crochet cable skills
  • Crochet in community with others, coming together not just with the Marly Bird community but with the communities of three other awesome crochet designers
  • Make four unique crochet cable designs in one month using our patterns, video tutorials, and instruction

Who Are The Designers?

Did you notice the Classic Crochet Cozy Collection CAL I mentioned a few months ago? If so, you already know the awesome designers that I’m working with:

These wonderful women have launched a few of these unique crochet-alongs in the past, and I’m thrilled to join them as the fourth designer for the Classic Cable Collection CAL.

What Are The Crochet Cable Designs?

Each of us designers has used crochet cables in unique ways. I’ve crafted a cable crochet blanket using crochet cables you work in rows. However, if you’ve ever worked cables in rows before using post stitches, you know that sometimes you see gaps in the fabric where the cables are. I’ve got a solution for this! Learn what it is and take your crochet cable skills to the next level. Here’s another sneak peek at the blanket, and you can see the full pattern here:

As you can see from the image above, the Classic Cable Collection CAL also includes:

Billow Yarn

Billow Yarn

We all worked with Billow Yarn on these projects. Billow is a wonderful bulky-weight cotton yarn. Even though it’s bulky, it’s still light to work with. It also has a great stitch definition for showcasing the cables. And yet, it works up quickly, which makes it perfect for completing these projects one week at a time, each during the CAL. Billow comes in 18 beautiful colorways.
