Pattern: My own after learning crochet cabling from YouTube.
My second and successful attempt. With a granny square configuration, each row could more easily be a different color. This also worked better because May's person liked drape and this made the square have much more drape.

I really enjoyed learning this technique and will definitely use it in the future. This square was more frustrating in some ways, learning a new technique, but I enjoyed it. I also think the color combination worked out well. I did think about using the green for the cables instead, but the green was a more stable yarn and worked better for being the dominant yarn used.
