Week 33 of the Country Garden crochet along features the Braided Cable stitch. This is a slim type of cable that looks like a braided rope running up the piece. This is the last of our pieces that fit into the corners of our blanket.
This pattern is written in US terms, but the UK translation are:
- sc (single crochet) = Double Crochet
- dc (double crochet) = treble crochet
- tr (treble crochet) = Double treble crochet
If you would like to follow my colour scheme in either Paintbox Cotton Aran or Caron Simply Soft, you can find my colours here

Now you can cut off and weave in your ends.
Now you need to attach this piece between the Ribbon and Bobblet panels by Whip stitching them together.
Turn everything over so you are working on the back side. Using the back loops on both pieces, sew them together.
On the long side of this week’s piece you will sew make 2 stitches into the side of each dc row and 1 stitch into the side of the sc row
On the short sides you will stitch them together stitch for stitch
