Ghost Cable On My Table

I’m having a love affair this week with ghost cables These simple and lovely cables, also called shadow cables, or broken cables, are really fragments of cable that begin to join and then disappear in a very elegant way. I found a whole bunch of recycled ecru-colored wool/nylon yarn and decided to do a diagonal lap blanket for those chilly autumn evenings coming up. 

Here’s how much I have so far, about a quarter finished, at 84 stitches in. I’m a big fan of “in-between-go-to” projects like these quick diagonal throws.

And here’s a close-up of the wandering ghost, the broken shadow cable:

Let me tell you the easy and beautiful pattern for the Shadow Cable Room Throw. Looks complicated but interesting, fast, easy, and fun! More later on this . . .
