Lovely patterns for the experienced crocheter
I can't stand "ribbing" made with crochet so I was not expecting lovely results with this faux knitting technique. But I was won over by the pictures in this book. These patterns drape beautifully when crocheted with soft yarn. I do hope I live long enough to make every pattern in the book! This is not for the beginner. It is tricky to see where the stitches should go, and some of the patterns require you to work from the back, which is hard to see. Also, if you get stuck, check out the errata page on the author's website. It may not be you who are wrong. Even so, this gets 5 stars from me! Review by Nell (Posted on 2/18/2018)
I only crochet and have been looking for a book with crocheted cable patterns in Celtic designs (I'm of Irish/Scottish heritage) for many years! I absolutely love all the patterns and I'm looking forward to making them! Thank you, thank you! Review by Ellen (Posted on 7/5/2016)
I haven't could find something like that book here in Denmark so, wend I found and got it I was that HAPPY. The book is beautiful and the patterns is fun to make.
Marry Christmas to you all from Denmark.

Beautiful cable crochet patterns
I initially had mixed feelings about this book. As an experienced knitter and crocheter, I prefer knit sweaters to crochet sweaters for a number of reasons. However, when I saw the cabled cardigan in this book, I was intrigued. I was also a bit disappointed at first, because I was mostly looking for sweater patterns, but some of the other projects quickly grew on me.

I also know it is difficult to make a purchase decision when you don't know what is included in a pattern book. Hopefully this will help:
The first 1/3 of the book contains a picture tutorial on how to do the various stitches in the patterns.
The 24 patterns consist of the following:
5 straight wraps and stoles
3 T-shaped wraps
2 baby blankets
A V-neck cardigan
A Collared cardigan
A V-neck sweater or vest
A Hat and scarf set
A Knapsack and 2 larger purse patterns that use wood handles and 2 smaller purses/phone cases.
Headband and infinity scarf pattern
A lace cape
2 afghan patterns

I gave the book 5 stars because the book is beautifully illustrated and I wanted to make several of the stole/wrap patterns because they are so lovely, not because I normally make or wear these items. I also gave it this rating because there is enough variety in the patterns to inspire using these techniques in one's own original creations.

Cable Love
I just had to order this when I saw the cable designs. This book did not disappoint. The pictures, instructions are easy to follow and understand. Bonnie Barker also has a web site that has lots of videos to help do the cables in the book if the pictures are not enough. I have already started getting yarn from my stash to start the different projects that I want to do. Review by Dorothy (Posted on 4/23/2015)
Crocht cables full steam!
The clear pictures showing the crochet cables "how to" are a must in this book. I was attracted by the crochet richness and style of the wrap cover project ( (yes, it´s a wrap!, and I think it has a bohemian attraction...), but was expecting more bohemian style projects inside .
Surely, will put this awesome crochet cables in projects i´ll be making!
Thank you Bonnie Barker!

changed my plans!!
I am 75 and just started crocheting a couple years ago. I decided after the first of the year I was going to teach myself knitting because there is so much more you can do. I thought the patterns were prettier. Well, you have sure changed my mind! Now I can't wait to get started.I taught myself to crochet after a back surgery. Even Tunisian crochet. I am so inspired by this book and patterns. I was blown away by the pictures and patterns. Thank you thank you! Sharon Jackson Review by Sharon (Posted on 12/15/2014)
Love the cables
This book is beautiful and full of beautiful cable crochet patterns. I cannot wait to get started as I plan on making several of these patterns. Review by Karen (Posted on 11/4/2014)
Beautiful patterns!
I plan to make several of the designs in this book. I never really liked cables done in crochet until I saw these. These designs are truly gorgeous. They do look time consuming, but worth it. The Hialeah Honey baby blanket has "family heirloom" written all over it! I want the Gaithersburg Stole for myself, but living in Florida, don't know how often I'd get a chance to wear it! Review by Linda (Posted on 10/17/2014)
Fantastic if you LOVE cables
I pre-ordered this book and did not know what if any patterns would be in it, as the pre-order really did not give lots of info! This is a book that I can honestly say is one that I will make the most of the patterns up that are within it!

The wraps are so beautiful I have already started on the first one, and plan on working through all of them and probably some of the bags and other accessories. There are blankets/afhgans/bags/hats/scarves/etc!

The designer, Bonnie Barker is well known for her cable patterns and is more than willing to help out should you get stuck. This in addition to all her helpful videos online!

I can't say enough about this book ~ so if I could give it 10 stars I would!
