Today’s Stitchopedia will be how to make a crochet horseshoe cable. This post contains a chart and video. The horseshoe cable is an is an intriguing cable that is basically two opposite cables pushed next to each other. The horseshoe cable was actually the first knit cable I learned, I really liked it and found it easy to incorporate into my projects. That is the inspiration for this, how to make a crochet horseshoe cable post. Of course I still love making it in knit, but today it’s crochet! If you need a refresher on crochet cables, you can find that HERE, and if you need some help with post stitches, you can find that HERE. Have fun!
