    Mikey, you rock! Thanks so much for the clear simplified instructions to crochet cables for any size. This is the second time you have taught me something that appeared complicated to actually be simple. Tunisian entrelac now cables ! I am feeling empowered and excited by all the possibilities. Do you have a Tunisian cable tutorial as well ? Thanks again. G

    Hi Mikey, love your tutorial! I want to make a 30 x 40 baby blanket so how may skeins of the chunky baby blanket yarn would I need? Many thanks!

      I don’t know the answer to that. The crochet cable is a concept idea for repeat stitching to make it happen. As far as yarn needed to make different size afghans, I really have no idea. Sorry I cannot be any more clearer.

        Thanks no worries, I’ll figure it out, I bought extra blanket yarn to cover me since I have to make 2 blankets. So I’m a few rows into the project and I noticed that the bottom on the cable side keeps curling up. I am trying to not crochet tight to avoid this. It’s hard to tell if this is normal for this yarn since you did not use the bulky blanket yarn in your video. Please let me know what I am doing wrong and how to correct this. Thanks!! 🙂

    I would like to make this in two colors, probably strips. Can I do that with 12,12, 5 in each color and the sc them together? I love your videos. You taught me how to crochet!

    the video is not close enough to the stitches in this video…. so many of your videos are great to follow as you show in detail what we need to do…but this one is harder to see the stitches you mean……I had a hard time figuring out which stitch he meant as his hands were in the way and the pace was so fast….and there is some punctuation missing in the written pattern. Great tutorial as ever as he talks about moving and pulling the stitches so you can see what you are doing, always great tips in every video. I love your videos.

    I’m a happy hooker who’s retired & been crocheting since early 1980’s & I never knew one could crochet cables.So glad I found your site.Thank you so very much for the easy to follow tutorial’s & directions to make them.I’ve been trying for sometime now to get my now retired 60 year old husband to learn the craft of hooking up with crochet.He thought it was for females only.Imagine his surprise when I showed him who runs the crochet crowd..It was priceless I just wish I’d had my camera handy..lol..

    He needs something like crochet to relax him on those bad weather days when he can’t go outside and work on his antique vehicles.I hope you’ve convinced him it’s not just for ladies!! He’s such a sport keep your fingers crossed he gives it a try.
