Cable Left, Cable Right: 94 Knitted Cables

We rated this book:


The cable is an essential and elegant knitting technique. From decorational panels to structural necessity, the cable is a versatile and iconic staple. If you have not yet mastered this technique, this book will help you go from complete cable novice to cabling like a pro, with elaborate stitching patterns and designs.

Who would have guessed there were so many different cable types? This book contains directions and instructions for ninety-four different designs, but these mostly fall into three types of categories: Simple Cables, Angles and Curves, and Braids and Pretzels. The book begins with a chapter on cabling basics then works up to some incredibly complex designs, like the Eight-Ribbed Pretzel or the Five-Rib Braid. This book is for knitters who have a project in mind and want to work these patterns into their designs; there are no specific projects included, although there are tips for how to incorporate the patterns into your own projects. Many are very beautiful. Each cable is pictured and described with both charts and text instructions, both of which are clear and easy to follow. This is an excellent guide to adding cables to your creations.
