I thought I’d treat myself to a new knitting book devoted entirely to cables. As much as I love crocheting, there is something deeply absorbing about knitting cables, yes I am addicted!
The book is The Harmony Guides: Cable & Aran Stitches: 250 Stitches to Knit edited by Erika Knight. You may need to shop around for a copy as prices vary, I paid under a fiver for mine, including postage, on eBay. The patterns are written very clearly, and some patterns have charts, there are a few errors, but on the whole, an excellent book.
I’ve already knitted a few samples and thought I’d share the pics, 19 stitch patterns completed so far…only another 231 to go! The yarn I used was some oddments of wool, dishcloth cotton, and some awesome yarn called ‘Creative Cotton Aran’ by Rico, it knits beautifully, and is very soft without losing stitch definition.
