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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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?

  8. 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. )

  9. 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?

  10. 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
