This is no ordinary cable book! Let Andra show you how easy it is to accent your work with cables. These 16 classic designs include something for each season--several patterns are presented with variations for spring and fall.



You'll find styles to flatter every figure in sizes from Small to 2X. Gain confidence as a designer as you start with a simple scarf, make a matching hat, and then create a summer shell, luscious sweaters, and more. You'll soon discover that if you can knit and purl, you can make anything!

3.0 out of 5 stars Must be able to read charts 19 May 2010
By Barbara Rhoades TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
A baker's dozen of projects are what you will get in this book on cable knits. It begins with seven pages of basic instructions in case you need to refresh any techniques. Then there are two hat/scarf patterns and nine various types of sweaters --- capelet, shell or sweater.

Both front and back cover has a plasticized "fold over" for making the page you are working on. It is not ring bound so you will need a weight to keep the book open while you work. Each project has a skill level and gives the size of the item, the materials needed, the suggested needles size used and a gauge to try so you know you will come up with the right size when you make the item.

Hopefully, you can work with charts rather than written instructions as every pattern uses charts. In my basic classes, charts were not taught so this will not be a book for me. The color photos of the items are well done and the print is a good size for older eyes.

If you aren't familiar with reading charts, find yourself a class or ask a more experienced knitter for a tutorial. Then, grab a copy and knit yourself up several sweaters or scarves for yourself or gifts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought this book for the sleeveless shell on the cover 26 May 2010
By Nicole B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a sweet book! I haven't made the shell as yet since I am finishing another project. But I plan on making it with a nice cotton/linen blend yarn for the summer. The book has many wonderful suggestions and patterns and well worth buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars great textured knits 3 Jan 2010
By K. Platt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Whilst I don't find anything extraordinary in the eleven designs in this book, it is a handsome collection of classics with a twist. I dislike the cover pattern, which would put e off buying the book at first, but don't judge by the cover. Inside you'll find a selection of clothing patterns including hats and scarves as well as jumpers, sleeveless tops and a capelet. Loving texture the way I do, cables are my favourite thing. This is aimed at the older market, some of the styles are a little too dated. This 64 page book has clear instructions and charts as well as good photography.

This is a great book - some fantastic looking designs with easy to read instructions AND lots of pictures!! Definately worth a buy, from beginner to expert. Even something in there for the 'cable freaks' among us.
