Liza Throw Video Tutorial

In this video, I’ll teach you how to crochet the gorgeous braided cable stitch that I used to make the Liza Throw Blanket.  If you are new to cabled crochet stitches, don’t be intimidated!   This pattern is actually pretty simple once you get the hang of it.  It is also super repetitive – so if you love to crochet while watching tv, I know you will love this pattern!

Row 4: DC in first two sc; *skip next stitch;  FPtr around next two dc from the row below;  working in front of last two fptr made, FPtr around skipped dc (braid made). DC in next sc, FPtr around next dc from row below, DC in next sc.  Repeat from * to last 6 stitches; make one more braid and then DC in last 3 sc; CH1, turn.

Row 5: SC in each stitch; CH3, turn.

  1. Nice pattern! I’m curious what yarn you used for the blanket. It looks soft and cozy, which crochet doesn’t always give. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for sharing this tutorial! I used it to make an afghan. I’m new to crocheting and made the error where it got looser and wider as it went and I didn’t realize it until I was finished. Is there a way to fix it without starting over? If I do have to start over, do you have tips for avoiding the same problem?

    1. Hmm, that is strange. I’m wondering if you have accidentally added some stitches along the way?

  3. Hi – just started this and I’m making it nice and chunky using the needle and yarn type recommended. As I’ve got going I’d also quite like to make a lighter weight one that feels a bit looser if that makes sense? What would I need to change to achieve this but keep the finished size the same? I’m a keen newbie. Thank you so much – the tutorials are so helpful too.

    1. Hi Sara, I would suggest going up a couple of hook sizes to make the blanket more light weight. You can offset the increased width by chaining one or two less multiples of six. The best way to determine the amount to chain, is to chain until you’re as close as you can to the desired width while maintaining a multiple of 6 plus 3
