Martin Storey is renowned for his wonderful cable patterns. Keen to share his passion for cable knits, he has created a guide to knitting cable patterns for the first time. In it he explains the basics: what a cable pattern is, how it is expressed in patterns (either written out or in charts) and how different cable patterns are designed.
He shows them step by step, how to knit a simple front and back cable, an alternating wave cable, and a plait cable, with three easy projects - wristwarmers, a scarf, and a cushion - for practice. He also includes patterns for six variations on basic cable designs, and then shows how to swap one cable design for another, so you can create your own cable design.
