    Cable Knits From Nordic Lands

    Cable Knits From Nordic Lands
    $24.95

    Swedish knitting phenom Ivar Asplund learned how to work cabling from his grandmother and was smitten right away — such marvelously intricate designs, and yet at their heart the underlying principles were so simple. A few stitches trading places here and there, and suddenly flowing braids, interwoven figures of eight, or classic x-and-o patterns came to life before his eyes.

    In this compelling collection, Asplund invites knitters to join him in exploring the possibilities, combining his grandmother's well-loved lessons in classic and time-tested cable knitting techniques with the elegant simplicity of contemporary Scandinavian design. You'll find over 20 projects, ranging from sweaters, cardigans, and ponchos to scarves, wrist warmers, and hats — for children and adults — that offer an attractive balance of historic and modern elements, as well as superior fit. Step-by-step pattern instructions guide novice cablers through straightforward reversible projects and eye-catching cable repeats; veterans can test their skills on larger, more complex garments with multiple cable panels; and a tutorial section explains the fundamentals of working and combining cables in any design to acheive a variety of striking effects.
