Twisted Cables Afghan

I am so happy with the way this blanket is coming out! This is the third time I’ve ever done anything in crocheted cables, but I can easily say that I am in love with the simplicity of them, but the complex look you can get out of it! I asked on my Facebook Page if people would rather wait until I could afford more yarn to finish the blanket or have me release it as is, releasing it looked like the vote based on the number of likes, so here it is!

  1. Also, I am assuming that in row 1 it should say “Row 1: Sc in *second* ch from hook and each ch across, turn.

  2. Hi! I’m curious as to what the repeat is if I wanted to use a smaller yarn and make a larger blanket. I know it asks for a chain of 113, but what if I wanted it larger?
