63 Cable Stitches to Crochet is filled with 63 awesome cable patterns. The cable patterns are given so that you can create the blocks needed to make your very own heirloom afghan, as well as pillow! Have a look at the cover, isn't that just beautiful? All the information you need to recreate that beauty is found in this awesome book.
As with all of the pattern books I have from Leisure Arts the instructions are super clear and easy to follow, and there are pictures, as well as basic instructions. Plus once you get a grasp of the patterns you can use the cable stitches to make your own custom designs for afghans or even accessories. I have started making my daughter a beautiful cabled square afghan that is so beautifully textured, if I do say so myself.
As you play with the patterns you can also start to see how to use these cables to make some super creative designs. I am trying to work out how to use the cables to make an owl pattern for a hat - I am very close and will let you know when I am successful with that, as well as when I complete the cabled blanket.
Please come back next week to see another awesome book that every creative crocheter needs in their library.
