After putting Deb's afghan aside in December because the twists and turns (cables) were making my right wrist sore, I picked it up again this weekend and finished it last night. It's soft and very nice to cuddle up to!

Using flash when taking photos definitely flattens out patterns! The second photo is a closer shot of the twists and turns (cables), but it's difficult to see so I added a photo of the afghan from the cover of the pattern book.


I am trying to make the very same afghan and am running into trouble using the pattern stitches (back post double crochet, front post triple crochet and back post triple crochet). Do you know of any tutorials or have any suggestions?

Hi, Leah - There are a few good websites with crochet tutorials. Those pattern stitches create cables - Crochet at has a Crocheting Cables Photo How-To.

Other good tutorials website for crochet are:

Annie's Attic - Stitching Help: Crochet

Learn to Crochet - Crochet at

You could also visit your local library to see what crochet books are available.
