For my Landscape Cable Throw, I’ve used 2.4 kg Atlas Bulky, (24 x 100g; 100g= 130m/ 3.53 oz/ 142 yards), a 6 mm circular needle (100 cm long), and a cable needle.
This yarn is a really soft yarn with great airy volume, suitable for crochet and knitting projects. It is made from 100% high-quality acrylic and comes in a beautiful selection of colors. Whether you knit or crochet with this yarn, the stitches will stand out nicely and clearly. If you are allergic to wool, or just don’t want to use animal fibers, you can substitute this great acrylic yarn for a soft and lovely result. The soft yarn is great for many creative, colorful projects. It definitely does not scratch and is comfortable to work with and wear on the body. You can purchase this great yarn HERE.

The final size of the Landscape Cable Throw is 132 cm/ 52 inches wide and 168 cm/66 inches long.
The gauge: 22 stitches x 24 rows/ 10 cm (4 inches).
With 100g you will knit 7 cm (18 rows), so if you want your throw to be shorter or longer, use more or less 100g skeins.
