This designer scales her striking arrangement of cable crossings to the generous proportions of this cozy afghan. Ropelike strands weave in and out on a background of reverse stockinette stitch, and seed stitch forms a deep border around the edges. A cushy blend of wool and alpaca will keep you warm on chilly mornings-and the color, an enticing tangerine, will brighten your day.
