This knit afghan pattern is made up of individually knit blocks that are worked in the round from the outer edge toward the center. When joined, the raised "X" across each block creates the illusion of cabling. This pattern is simple, but rather time consuming.
This is one of the few projects where using self-striping yarn from multiple dye lots makes the finished product look even better.

My patterns are designed, not just written down, because I want your project to be a success!
Before knitting begins, I sketch ideas, test yarns, stitch swatches, create charts, do math and consider a variety of skills and construction methods. Each pattern uses standard knitting terminology and notations, is edited for technical accuracy and has a logical, easy-to-read format.
I do the work so you can relax and enjoy the knitting.
