I just went to a site called sweaterBabe.com that has a pattern for a blanket with three cables in it. It might be what you are looking for .Good luck Willene

Hi Norma,

This one is definitely a little different.  You have to pick up and knit the "orange" boarder stitches!

This one is a pattern using XOXO.  It gives a graph as well as written instructions.  The instructions are given for hand knitting as well as for a knitting machine.  I don't know if you have a knitting machine or not.  I don't have one.  My Mom has one and she rarely uses it any more.

Let me know how you make out with these.  Zoe

Thanks to all for some great ideas!  I've also got a book from the library called Continuous Cables and I may try to create something from the cable patterns there Idea  Keep the ideas coming!! LOL    Norma

Hello!

I made this for my new grandson and it came out beautifully. I can't remember where I got the original pattern.   I'm getting ready to make it in a larger size for a sofa throw.  

Good luck,

Jill

 GAUGE:  # 14 sts/# 20 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch

 PATTERN NOTES:  Cable = made with six stitches, slip stitch three stitches as if to purl on cable needle (cn), let it fall in front of work, knit the next three stitches, then knit the three stitches on the cn.  Seed st = knit the purl stitches, and purl the knit stitches.

 PATTERN:

Knitting with both yarns together, cast on 144 stitches.  Working in seed stitch border:

Row 1: K1, P1 to end

Row 2: K1, P1 to end

Continue until you have 6 inch border

Working in main pattern:

Row 1: *K1, P1 (work from * for 9 stitches), **K 18, P2, K2, P2, K6, P2, K2, P2 (work from ** twice), K18, *K1, P1 (work from * till end).

Row 2: *K1, P1 (work from * for 9 stitches), **P 18, K2, P2, K2, P6, K2, P2, K2 (work from ** twice), P18, *K1, P1 (work from * till end).

Row 3: *K1, P1 (work from * for 9 stitches), **K 18, P2, K2, P2, K6, P2, K2, P2 (work from ** twice), K18, *K1, P1 (work from * till end).

Seed stitch border

Row 1: K1, P1 to end

Row 2: K1, P1 to end

Bind off.   It is really important to block your work.  Since this is machine washable, I put the blanket through the washer in the gentle cycle and laid it out flat to dry. It is important to pin it down when it is drying.

I couldn't find the pattern from this site! Am looking for a simple baby blanket with 3 or 4 cables. I need to make two for twins in Sept.
