Continuous Cables by Melissa Leapman
Take your Cable Knits to the Next Level with Continuous Cables, An Exploration of Knitted Cabled Knots, Rings, Swirls, and Curlicues
Mention the phrase “cable knitting,” and you might be imagining textured ropes, twists, and braids winding up knitted fabrics. But did you know that knitting can also create circular, closed-ring shapes with cables? Just imagine: curlicues, rings, swirls, knots—even intricate Celtic-inspired motifs—all richly embossed on knits!
In Continuous Cables, expert knitwear designer Melissa Leapman goes beyond the traditional, ordinary cables to provide you with an original collection of projects and stitch patterns featuring beautiful, closed-ring cables.
- Complex-looking cables aren’t as hard as they look, and in Continuous Cables, they are broken down into all of their component parts.
- The all-new patterns are versatile and sophisticated, and the directions are clear and accessible.
- Leapman walks you through projects that include everything from simple pillows and hats to home accessories, to knit garments for women, plus gifts for your friends and family.
But Continuous Cables isn’t merely a source for 20 fun patterns—it also features more than 80 original individual stitch patterns, most designed just for this book. With a primer on basics, a useful yarn choice and substitution section, resource guide, and a stitch dictionary of closed-ring cable patterns, Continuous Cables is a must-have reference for your growing knit library.
Endless cables, infinite possibilities!
