The wonderful and coolest thing about this design, once you start the main pattern after the 1st – 3 rows are done, every other row is just straight single crochet across. This means, one row you need to think and the other row to get back is just a no brainer. The complete design is completed on the front side of the afghan so you can see it come together as your crochet. So if you are making an error, you will see it right away.

So when you look at the diagram below, don’t freak out. Take it line by line. The tutorial I have provided is extremely long. I follow you through the entire sheet. Once you get rows 1 – 14 done, you start again at Row 1 and so on. It’s not hard.

You will notice this diagram is slightly different than the one provided with the original pattern. Mikey’s diagram has two repeats of the cable twisting instead of just one in the original pattern. Both diagrams are the same, Mikey’s is just extended for educational purposes.

    I wish you should make the worksheet a little bit large. They are hard to read. thank you .

    • Mikey

      The diagram is already in landscape mode on a piece of paper. I really cannot make it much larger as the diagram will not be all on one piece of paper. Do you have a suggestion on how to make it bigger?

    Hi Mikey, Love this afghan. I am trying to follow along with the written pattern and for the life of me can’t match up those instructions with the video. The video instructions seem much clearer, so nice job there. Would it be possible to get the written version of the instructions from the video? Thanks so much.

    • Mikey

      As far as I know, I filmed what the pattern was. Why do you think it’s different? I know I provided a diagram that is marked up for my teaching purposes that can be downloaded. 🙂

      I see the difference in the patterns compared to the video. I was so glad to see that in the video that Mikey didn’t go under the fptr to do the 2 skipped ones, he went over top which is much easier. My directions clearly state to go under but that is awkward and time consuming and it pulls the stiches out too much. You can see on the picture that it looks like they went underneath. I did not want to do that so was going to look for a different cable pattern when I found his video, so that saved my project, I am going forth with it,. Thank you. It is a beautiful pattern and will be fun to do now that I watched the video. I got my pattern and yarn kit from Mary Maxim but is the same graph and pattern as on here.

        If it can be done and you are okay with the look, just go for it. 🙂 Find your own path. 😀

    Hi,Mikey. I’ve printed out the directions and it doesn’t look like yours. Are the written directions you used in this video somewhere else?

    • The pattern online, are usually the most up to date, so if the patterns was done previous to the latest version online that may be why you see a difference. That would be the only copy.

  5. Hi Mikey: somehow or other, your two cable afgans are mixed in the directions. I need the directions for the first one with the V stitch. Could you please send me the written directions? I also need the directions for finishing the tassels at the end of the afgan. I certainly do love your work. Thanks Joan

    I’m struggling with aligning the extended v stitch. I’ve checked the chain one space and I’m putting the v into the correct stitch also. The left side angle of the v is ‘off’. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong and wondered how I could correct it

  7. Louise Alvey

    Hi Mikey. Love all your videos especially this 1. I’ve always loved the look of cables. Was wondering, I have a lot of acrylic yarn was wondering if I could use that instead of what you used in the video?

    Hi Mikey, great video. I enjoy your site and like very much your teaching methods. I’m hooked as well thanks to you!

    Beautiful. I did one similar to this about 10 years ago. Except it was done in Tunisian and it had angels and hearts with it. I made a male sweater very much like this also. Now I see a full afghan,, and I will make this You always find an excellent way to get me from doing my chores. )

  12. Marie Johnson

    Your video is very informative. I hope I have a successful afghan upon completion. Thank you for such a beautiful presentation. Is it possible to use a less bulky yarn or would that change too many factors?

  13. Virginia

    Mickey that was a great video!!! This is a much easier pattern than most. Live how you teach. Thanks

    Do you have a pattern for a corner to corner blanket with an elephant?

  15. Sheryl Myers

    Hello Mr. Mike:L

    I love all your patterns and have made many baby blankets. Could you help me find a pattern with corner to corner with a elephant. She is due in July and I want to start it after spring break because I have 3 more showers this year.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
