Knitted cables, with their three-dimensional twists and turns, are a common element in lots of patterns — but most patterns don’t include directions for executing them. Cable Left, Cable Right, by expert knitter Judith Durant, eliminates the mystery with detailed, in-depth instructions for creating 94 different styles of cable, from perfectly plain to fantastically fancy. Close-up photos and clear instructions teach you the techniques you need, including design options like braids, diamonds, and pretzels so you can make your cables truly one-of-a-kind. This book is the perfect companion to any knitting pattern featuring cables, giving you the information and skills to make polished, beautiful, and unique cables for any project.
**QUICK INFO: I do my best not to have spoilers, but I will warn you I may accidentally have them in my review.**
When I saw that this book was going to be published I was almost jumping for joy. I have previously gotten Increase, Decrease: 99 Step-by-Step Methods by Judith Durant & love it. It is carried in my knitting bag with just about every project I make. Since this one is in ebook format it has now become a permanent resident in my books folder on my phone & tablet.
I love the way that Judith Durant explains how to do cables. I have knitted cables before, but still struggle with them quite a bit. Even though the book does not have complete written out directions, Judith Durant takes the time before even starting the cables to make sure you understand how to read the charts for each cable. She also lists the cable legends in a easy to read & understand format. You can easily flip back to the legend anytime you need to double check how to make that cable or what that symbol means. I recommend this book for any knitter (new & experienced alike) to keep in their knitting library for different types of cables. Though this book does not have every single cable imagined in it, the ones it does have are a wonderful stepping stone to other cables.
I received this book from Net Gallery for this review.
