Today’s free pattern is a beautiful, timeless cable crochet blanket that can be used in any room of the house – the Cable Diamond Blanket.

I love crocheting home decor items to our home as they add such a feeling of warmth and comfort. Also, I have always wanted to design a blanket based on my popular Cable Diamond Pillow. Whether you lay it over a sofa, chair or bed, this cable crochet blanket is sure to be a focal point in any space.

Crochet cables are classic and timeless, so my favorite thing about this cable crochet blanket is that it isn’t going out of style anytime soon. By combining more advanced post stitches with simple single crochet stitches, you are able to create a visually stunning snuggle. And, the ribbed border makes the perfect finishing touch if you ask me.

Although the crochet cables might seem difficult, it’s a common misconception that they require a lot of work. Once you’ve tried a few rows, this pattern is very easy to do, and the stitches themselves will become relaxing. I took plenty of photos for assistance too.

This richly textured Cable Crochet Diamond Blanket lets you practice crochet cables using your favourite yarn. I really think the yarn makes this design. If you haven’t worked with Bamboo Soft before, you should definitely try it out.

I have a long and successful relationship with using Scheepjes’ yarns in my making journey. Bamboo Soft yarn is one of my favourites, especially when it comes to crocheting for babies.

I chose to use the color “Golden Nugget”, which is exactly what I used for Carina Rectangle Blanket this past Fall. There’s such a nice selection of colors for this yarn too. Whether this is a cable crochet blanket for your own baby, a grandchild, or a friend, everyone is sure to appreciate this handmade gift. 

I adore my new Cable Diamond Blanket and hope you love it as much as I do. It’s sure to cozy up any corner of your home!

General Notes:

  • The pattern uses US crochet terminology.
  • The blanket is worked in rows back and forth.
  • Pattern is multiple of 44 plus 38 stitches. To increase the width of the blanket, increase the number of chains. To decrease the width of the blanket, decrease the number of chains.
  • You can make this blanket as long as you like by adding or substracting pattern repeats.
  • You can also use yarn in different weights, but just know that the width will be different depending on your gauge.
  • Ch1 at the beginning of each row doesn’t count as a stitch.
  • All even rows are single crochet rows and worked in indicated stitches 1 row below.
  • All FPdc(s) and FPtr(s) are worked in indicated stitches 2 rows below.
  • The number of post stitches is always the same as the number of skipped sts so finally the stitch count is the same (126) in each row.
  • STITCHES: When in the instructions you have a stitch followed by a number, eg sc14, this means you have to work 1sc stitch into each of the next 14 sts. When in the instructions you have a number followed by a stitch, eg 2sc, this this means you have to work 2 sc stitches into the next (same) stitch.
  • Instructions in square brackets […] are worked as many times as indicated.
  • The stitch chart is included in the ad-free printable PDF here on ETSY or here on Ravelry.
  • You can find the Progress Pictures/Photo Tutorial below.
