Expert knitter and crocheter Lily M. Chin has been teaching cable knitting for nearly 20 years to packed houses and eager students. With Power Cables, she shares her designing and teaching expertise to create a must-have resource on this popular technique.
This book takes the you from the most basic twisted stitches through complex and imaginative interpretations of cables that add texture, color, and even nontraditional explorations (such as turning stitches around, constructing cables with I-cord, and wrapping stitches to create the illusion of cables).
Lily's signature and sought-after technique for creating reversible cables is thoroughly explained and integrated with the rest of the techniques, teaching the reader to make almost any cable reversible. In addition to knitting any cable pattern, readers will learn Lily's new charting system, which shows the behavior of the cable more clearly. Other tips include cabling without a cable needle, choosing the best yarns to show off different cable effects, and even designing your own cable patterns. Readers can practice each of these skills in an original knitted pattern; the book contains 15 original patterns for pullovers, jackets, bags, socks, and accessories.
