How do you feel about cables? I’m going to admit that I’m not a fan … not because I can’t do them, but I’m terrified of them! Sure, I got over my fear of colorwork, so maybe this ebook from Interweave Knits will help me get over my fear of cables a little…
If you love cables as much as I do, maybe for the variety of textures they create or for the flair and grace they add to any knitted fabric, but have always been intimidated to try them, then a new cable basics eBook is just what you need to get started. Eunny Jang and our friends at Interweave Knits have created a fabulous, instantly downloadable eBook A Step-by-Step Guide to Knitting Cables. This eBook includes a thorough, basic how-to; a tutorial for reading charts; and instructions for four staff favorite projects.
Here’s a sneak peek directly from the eBook:
All cables are created by knitting stitches out of order, manipulating the stitches so that they cross over one another. When these crossed stitches are combined with knit and purl textures, the illusion of “strands” twisting over and around each other is created. In this eBook, we’ll look at several cable types and work through knitting them step by step.
