By Norah Gaughan. This comprehensive book is a great reference for those who are knitting cables or incorporating cables into their own designs. The first section covers the basics of cables: the anatomy of a cable, how to read a chart, interpreting symbols, and troubleshooting. The majority of the book is dedicated to the cable patterns themselves. More than 150 different cables are given, most of which have never been published before. Each gives a description of the cable, a photo of the cable in a swatch, written directions, and charted directions. In addition, complete instructions are given for projects using cabling, including hats, pullovers, a vest, ponchos, a cardigan, and a skirt. Norah encourages adaptation of the patterns to different cable options and uses her Stockinette Stitch Equivalent System to help you make the design your own.
