I finally crochet my first Zig Zag Cable pattern. It is easier to follow a diagram than a written description.
In this pattern, T is a hdc and the O with a T on top is an ESC. ESC is extended single crochet. The pink hooks are Front Post Trebles (FPtr). The dark blue and light blue coloured hooks are Front Post Double Trebles (FPDtr).
This stitch is marked in 2 colours because the light blue coloured hooks go behind the blue cloured hooks when you make the cables. This makes the Zig Zag pattern where it looks like the cables are woven in and out of each other. This is because the cables are crochet 2 rows below the row you are on. When you make the FPtr and FPDtr crochet around the stitches 2 rows below as the diagram above shows.

This is a great pattern to practise Celtic Weave pattern.
