My current work in progress:

Moth Cardigan, designed byAmy Christoffers, knit from Rowan SoftYak DK in the Plain colorway, using U.S. size 3 and 5 needles.

More Cables

I have here for review a very handy booklet:

Book013115 184x240 More Cables

This is First Time Cable Knitting by Cari Hammett. This is a 32-page booklet with nicely detailed instructions for how to knit cables. There are step-by-step instructions with nice clear photos, charts, and sample swatches.

In addition to the how-to information, there are stitch patterns for 7 different cables. The instructions are charted and written out.

And there are 2 patterns for projects: a laptop cover:

And a pillow:

This is a handy resource for anyone who is new to cables, I think. Rather than do a giveaway on the blog, I am going to pass my review copy to my new knitter I taught last summer. She hasn’t done cables yet. 🙂

Meanwhile, I am still at work on the back of Chloe.

Comments

  1. It does look like a valuable book…your student will love you for it. Can’t wait to see all your cables together in the end.

  2. What a great teacher. Your new knitter will live it.

  3. Elaine in NYC says:

    Loki’s fur looks crimped like one of our wooly friends!

  4. Midnite Baker says:

    I like Elaine’s comment about crimped hair. Are you saving Loki’s hair for spinning into yarn?
    Have a great week. M

  5. Looks like a good booklet, and good value for money–even for NON-first time cablers lol.
    Loki is gorgeous as always!

  6. Catherine S. says:

    Lucky you, New Knitter! You will fall in love with cables.

  7. Your Chloe is looking better and better each week! I love knitting cables and know that your new knitter will enjoy the book. Loki looks beautiful as always.

  8. Look at that face! Such a handsome boy
