Crochet cables can be very intimidating, so I’ve shown you how to make the braided crochet cable pattern on my YouTube channel. I have used Front post stitches to create a beautiful crochet braid.

The Yarn

The braided crochet mitten pattern is made in Wool of the Andes worsted weight yarn from WeCrochet. This classic worsted wool yarn is spun and plied carefully to achieve a wonderfully balanced twist. Spun from Peruvian wool, the strong fibre has an excellent balance of structure, loft, and drape that serves various uses. This sturdy, all-purpose yarn has excellent stitch definition and heirloom durability. It is ideal for cabled sweaters, textured stitch afghans, and everyday accessories. It comes in 100 gorgeous colours!- WeCrochet

My daughter loves the fit of these mittens. They are well fitted to allow for some stretch over time.

I’m pleased I was able to get a few festive outdoor Fall shots. Our corn is still in the fields but will be gone soon. At least I’ll have the snow to look forward to. Our Braided Crochet Mittens and Hat will be perfect for cold and snowy winter days.
