Easy Ca­bled Knits

The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves - by Martin Storey

Martin Storey’s lat­est pat­tern book is aimed at knit­ters new to ca­bles, but its 10 beau­ti­fully tra­di­tional de­signs with a mod­ern twist are sure to ap­peal to ex­pe­ri­enced knit­ters, too!

Martin has de­signed 10 easy­go­ing gar­ments and ac­ces­sories, all with a soft, rus­tic look thanks to the use of Rowan’s Hemp Tweed yarn. The ‘Ca­ble Edge Jacket’ is typ­i­cal of this re­laxed feel; it has an open-fronted shape, short sleeves and pock­ets, with smart ca­ble de­tails. It is sized to fit busts of up to 50in, as is the ‘Links Ca­ble Cardi­gan’, a V-neck de­sign.

The book in­cludes a more fit­ted cardi­gan with a garter stitch yoke and ca­bled bands, and the ‘Chain Ca­ble Slipover’. Both are to fit busts of 32in to 46in.

Stylish ac­ces­sories in­clude a long, nar­row tri­an­gu­lar shawl, edged with a corkscrew ca­ble and fin­ished with tas­sels; a scarf with a large plaited pat­tern; a sim­ple cowl; and a pair of moss stitch ca­ble mitts. For the home, there’s a tex­tured ‘Win­dow­pane Cush­ion’, and a patch­work blan­ket dec­o­rated with trees and trimmed with a rope ca­ble edg­ing. £15.
