Over Christmas break, my husband Mark and I were watching a TV show with my mom about knit and crochet cables. I enjoy elegant details in my work, and loved the thought of crochet cables. However, I wasn't a big fan of how they worked their cables, and ideas started running through my head on how to create my ideal crochet cable.

I pictured this design as a cowl, because by design cables act a bit like ribbing, and a tube of ribbed fabric makes an excellent neck covering, which is perfect for the rainy winter months in the San Francisco Bay Area. The tiny scalloped top edging can also be omitted for a more masculine look.



Hook size H
Gauge: 7 sts by 10 rows = 2 inches
Yarn: On Line Linie 208 Nature-Wool
Weight: Bulky / 12 ply (7-8 wpi)

Pattern:

Row 1: Ch 78, sl st into first st to join in the round, being careful not to twist sts.

Row 2: Turning foundation chain over, ch 1, then sc 77 into back loop of chain. Sl st into first st to join in the round.

Row 3: Ch 2, dc 77, sl st to join.

Row 4: Ch 2, dc 1, *(dc 4 into front of post, dc 2)* 12 times, dc 4 into front of post, sl st to join.

Row 5: Ch 2, dc 1, **(sk 2, dc 2 into front of post, cross in front of work and dc 2 into front of post of skipped sts, dc 2 into 2 following cabled post sts)**, sk 2, dc 2 into front of post, cross in front of work and dc 2 into front of post of skipped sts

Rows 6 - 8: Repeat row 4

Row 9: Repeat row 5

Row 10 - 12: Repeat row 4

Row 13: Repeat row 5

Row 14 - 15: Repeat row 4

Row 16: Repeat row 5

Row 17 - 18: Repeat row 4

Row 19: ch 1, sc 77

Row 20: Repeat row 16

Row 21: (Sl st, ch 3, sk st, sl st), repeat to end of row, slipping last st into first st. Pull tail straight up through final st.

Weave in ends. Block to shape.

Enjoy!  I'd love to see photos of your variations in this thread.

Thanks!  It's my engagement ring.  I just wear it on my right hand now that I've got my wedding ring on my left hand. Smiley  It's rhodalite and white topaz.
