More Cables

I have here for review a very handy booklet:

Book013115

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.
