How to Crochet Easy Cables

Did you read about my yarn bombing adventures? Make sure you don’t miss out on the free cable pattern I shared!

Since everyone learns in different ways, I thought I would write out the pattern for the cable. Some people prefer YouTube tutorials while others like to read a pattern. Whatever floats your boat. 🙂
