The Cables for Dana pattern is intended to be made with Pure Cotton Super Soft Chunky yarn by ColourSpun (kits available here). It is heavy (!) when finished but, because its cotton, it is not too warm to use. It is very comfortable and ideal as a bed-end throw. I have provided instructions for King, Queen, Double and Single bed sizes.
The ribbed border for these throws is worked at the same time as the main body of the throws. This gives a very professional edge to the throw.
Cables may look intimidating, but they are not all that difficult to do. The pattern is worked over a repeat of 6 rows. Once the pattern is established in the 1st repeat, it becomes quite easy to keep track of the pattern and the stitch counts. There are no video tutorials for this pattern as its very easy.
It takes a bit of practice using a super big hook. Don’t overdo it as you will end up with sore hands. The stitches are oversized and relaxed to give a lovely soft drape. I love mine! Work with relaxed hands, we don’t want tight stitches for this project.
Note: I have had a few small issues with my website. If you can’t find your subscription, please send me proof of payment and I will reinstate it. This only applies for a handful of subscriptions. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I have had lots of kind messages of support over the last few weeks. So many of you took the time to write a special message to me. I will treasure these always. Thank you!!
As a result of your support, I have raised enough money to keep the website active until 31 May 2022. Thank you so much to everyone who rushed to buy the Last Chance Subscription and also the English Pattern Bundle. It has been a big help and will pay the website hosting services, bank charges and various other bits and pieces while I wind down.
Sending lots of love to you all.
