Crochet Cables – Horizontal Puff Variation

If there is one thing I miss about knitting, it’s cables, crochet cables are not quite the same, but this is one version I’ve been working on which I’ve combined with Horizontal Puffs.


Abbreviations:
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
tr – treble crochet
sl st – slip stitch
sk – skip
st(s) – stitch(es)
yo – yarn over
FPdc – Front Post Double Crochet – Yo and insert hook from the front to the back around the post of the st on the previous row. Complete as for regular dc.
BPdc – Back Post Double Crochet – Yo and insert hook from the back to the front around the post of the st on the previous row. Complete as for regular dc.
FPtr – Front Post Treble – Yo and insert hook from the front to the back around the post of the st on the previous row. Complete as for regular tr.
BPtr – Back Post Treble – Yo and insert hook from the back to the front around the post of the st on the previous row. Complete as for regular tr.
HP – Horizontal Puff – (yo, insert hook around dc, pull up yarn to approximately the length of 2 ch) 4 times, yo and pull through all loops on hook.

Foundation Row: Ch 27, 1 hdc in 4th ch from hook, hdc across, turn. (25 sts)
