I have long been inspired by Norah Gaughan’s innovative knitwear designs and her approach to knitwear. She seems to come at things from a different direction, in a way that can make other knitters’ heads spin, but it always turns out to be logical, amazing and fun to knit from one of her patterns.
Her Knitted Cable Sourcebook has more than 150 stitch patterns — the vast majority are original — and 15 projects to use them in. But what’s really cool is that each stitch pattern is given with its Stockinette equivalent, which means you can easily substitute different stitch patterns in the projects here, or add a cable panel to a project by just subbing the cable in for that number of Stockinette stitches.
This is a really great book that is sure to inspire the cable knitters out there to try some new things and get creative when adding cables to patterns.
If you’d like a chance to win my copy of this book, leave a comment on this post between now and the end of the day Sunday, February 5. I’d love to know how you use cables in your knitting projects!
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck.
