The Cables and Lace Afghan Project

Knitted sampler blanket with cables and lace patterning

These squares were donated by people from all over the world and were made into a baby blanket and donated to charity. Copyright for all squares remains with their designers.


The 2 knitters that were supplying squares 11 and 12 never sent them, so to make a total of 12 squares just repeat your 2 favourites. I figured 5 years was more than long enough to wait.

Square 4 in the finished blanket is a different colour than in the directions because the original fell apart in the wash (moths got into my storage box).

  • Afghan Square 1 by Elsa P Smutz
  • Afghan Square 2 by Elisabeth Tucker
  • Afghan Square 3 by Rita taylor
  • Afghan Square 4 by Marilyn Muller
  • Afghan Square 5 by Renee Ladd
  • Afghan Square 6 by Elizabeth Dimbleby
  • Afghan Square 7 by Kay MacLaury
  • Afghan Square 8
  • Afghan Square 9
  • Afghan Square 10 by Sarah Bradberry

Repeat your favourite 2 squares to make a total of 12.

Finish your blanket with 3 rounds of double crochet (US single crochet) in colours to complement your squares.

All squares for this afghan are interchangeable with the squares from the Oddball Sampler Afghan which I designed in 97-98
