Crochet A Trunk-Full O' Fun!

Note:

There has been a lot of feedback about the scrolling text in the videos in this series.  I have decided to remake the two series already published on You Tube without text. The ones with the scrolling text will remain on You Tube.  The last two squares in the series will either have no text with closed captioning available, or the text will appear in a different place on the video. 

Cable Crochet Squares

The beautiful texture of cables is not only for knits. The following patterns all are crochet cable patterns.

 

 

 

 The 10-inch squares can be assembled for larger projects. Stitch multiples are included so they can be used in larger projects.
