Crochet cables have always been fascinating to me. I love the way they pop off the fabric and add so much texture!

Plus, there are many ways or techniques to complete a crochet cable but I don’t see many patterns out there with the hidden crochet cable.

The hidden crochet cables are made in such a way that it eliminates the gap or hole behind the post stitches. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it makes a nice reversible fabric as both sides look great. This is the cable I chose to use on the Inishmore Crochet Cable Blanket Pattern.

NOTES

  • Directions are for size baby blanket size; changes for throw blanket size are in parentheses. When only one number is given then that number applies to all sizes.
  • Place a marker at the beginning of each stitch repeat (at the * in the row) to help keep track of where you are in the pattern. 
  • Skip dc behind post stitches throughout. 
  • Cable stitches are only worked on the right side rows. 
  • Cable stitches are only worked around the single crochet or post stitch two rows below, never into the double crochet of the previous row. 
  • Wrong side rows are made up of double crochets. When applicable, work the double crochet through both the top of the skipped double crochet stitch and the top of the post stitch from the previous row.
