Enter the world of Jack and the Beanstalk with a cabled throw on such a grand scale it could be from the giant’s own castle. Designed to keep you cozy in winter, three different traditional cables are used; mirrored rope cables, inverted gull cables and a huge Saxon Braid as the centerpiece.
The original pattern for Beanstalk is fully charted; the first row is worked on the WS and the written instructions place each chart in the correct position. Follow the charts on RS rows from right to left, and on WS rows from left to right.
I have now included an updated version of the pattern which contains a full chart as well as full written instructions. The individual cable charts are still given for reference.
Beanstalk Throw first appeared in the Woodsmoke Cable Collection, published by Knit Picks in 2017.
