This fun and simple textured crochet cable stitch is featured in the Harmony Throw crochet along that is well underway and we’d love for you to join!
The free crochet along is hosted by the LoopHole Fox and Made by Gootie. They invited 10 other designers to collaborate to create a truly magnificent textured crochet throw that is worked in sections one after the other so there’s no seaming or joining to worry about!
Here’s a peek at the glorious finished blanket that you can make with us:

More about the Harmony Blanket crochet along
If you’ve been with me for a while you’ll know that I love taking part in crochet alongs! It’s when crocheters from all over the world work on the same pattern at the same time and share their love of crochet by supporting each other and showing us how they are getting on.
It’s so much fun!
This blanket crochet along isn’t like most though – there are 12 designers and so to collect all of the sections you’ll need to pop over for the details from our host pages.
HOST 1: Sections 1-6: See the information and events page.
HOST 2: Sections 7-12: See the information and events page.
These pages have all the information about materials, supplies and where you’ll be able to find each section of the blanket pattern.
How do I find the pattern?
You have 2 options for joining along with the crochet along:
Visit the above events pages during the CAL and find the links to download the individual PDFs of each section of the blanket.
The pattern will always be FREE on the designer’s website, and the PDF pattern will be available for FREE on their feature day for 24 hours (starting at 08:00 am PST).
Get the blanket Ebook to download and keep so you don’t have to remember to collect all the sections. Purchase the Ebook today.
The best bit about the Ebook is that it gathers all the 12 different parts of the blanket, including the transition rows and full border instructions.
Some of the patterns are explained more thoroughly in the PDF version with a detailed photo tutorial.
There’s also a resource library, where you can find all the relevant stitch tutorials (including photo or video) for each part of the blanket.
Throughout the event the eBook will be available for a discounted price of $10.99. Following that the price will be increased to $15.99.
Part 3 of the Harmony Throw CAL
Right then, let’s get to the section of the blanket that I’ve designed!
To make my sample of my section I used Wander by Furls Crochet which is a category 4 worsted weight yarn.
The entire blanket you see in the images is made using Sirdar Country Classic (category 4 yarn) which comes in the most beautiful colours!
Sizing and Gauge
The Section measures 50×5″ (127×12.7 cm).
The finished Harmony Throw Blanket is a 50×60″ (127×152 cm) size blanket.
19 st and 12 rows = 4 in x 4 in/10 cm x 10 cm with 5.0mm / H crochet hook.
Along with your yarn, you will need the following:
- A 5mm(H) crochet hook- my favourites are Furls Streamline Swirl crochet hooks or Clover Amour crochet hooks.
