Free Cabled Afghan Knitting Patterns and Ideas

Knitting an afghan keeps you warm as you work. Then, you get to pass on that feeling to someone you love. Plus, with their bulky textures, afghans are a perfect project for showing off a special stitch like a cable. Cabled afghans are a trendy home décor item as well as a practical project. When you use these free cable afghan patterns, you can invest the money you save in high-quality, soft yarn.

The Autumn Aran Afghan features a simple stripe pattern that highlights the cabled panels. It has a clean, masculine look that will look beautiful in neutrals or in jewel tones. Coordinate the yarn color with your living room décor, or choose a bright accent color to make the cables pop.

The Horseshoe Cable Afghan has a more subtle texture, but it's still beautifully intricate. This cabled afghan pattern will look beautiful in white for a fall wedding present. You can also knit the afghan in a bold color and it will look fantastic draped over your bed or favorite chair.
