Power Cables: The Ultimate Guide to Knitting Cables Printed Books
Lily Chin does it again!
With clear images and instruction, this book takes away the mystery surrounding cables. This is not a beginner how to book, but can be appreciated by newbies and experienced knitters alike.
From simple to sculptural, the original cable patterns explored in this must-have resource create a foundation of techniques for designing signature knitwear. Basic twisted stitches, complex interpretations of cables, reversible cables, adding texture and color, turning stitches around, constructing cables with I-cord, and wrapping stitches to create the illusion of cables are some of the integrated techniques detailed in this guide. Contained within are more than 15 original cable patterns for pullovers, jackets, bags, socks, and accessories. Also included is information on a new charting system for predicting cable behavior as well as tips on cabling without a cable needle, choosing the best yarns for specific cable effects, and designing original cable patterns.
Machine knitters will also be inspired by the patterns presented. Not all texture has to have both knit and purl stitches!
This is a must have for every knitters library!
