Praise for The Very Easy Guide to Cable Knitting

"This book is perfect if you are new to cables.... It takes a beginning cabler through Mock Cables, Cable Panels and Cable Patterns in a very methodical, not scary way...incredibly helpful to a new cable knitter who may be not quite sure what she's seeing between the printed stitch pattern and the knitted stitch pattern." --Knitty.com

"This is a refreshingly clean, inviting, accessible, well-written introduction to a technique that can, if you enjoy it, lead you on all sorts of more elaborate adventures. It doesn't dumb-down cables, nor does it claim to offer the ultimate encyclopedia of every cable stitch ever created. In short, this book is exactly what its title promises: a very easy guide to cable knitting." --Knitter's Review
