Take knitted cables from heirloom to vavoom!
In Unexpected Cables author Heather Zoppetti has crafted a fresh, modern, flattering collection of 18 knitted garments. She perfectly captures the essence of the iconic knitted cable and makes cabled designs decidedly fashion-forward!
The book features 3 chapters: Refined, Lace, and Abstract.
Refined cables explore classic Aran cables using lightweight yarns, twisted stitches, and feminine shapes. In the Lace section, Heather challenges knitters to marry together these two popular knitting techniques with spectacular results. The Abstract section focuses on unusual construction, direction, and texture in cabled projects that have edgy, urban feel. Sleek garment shapes, an interesting mix of cables and lace, and unusual construction converge to bring the generations-old tradition of cable knitting squarely into the here and now. Knitters will delight in making these intriguing, accessible creations! Softcover, 128 pages; Interweave Press
