If you have al­ways ad­mired beau­ti­ful cro­chet ca­ble de­signs but have been fear­ful to take the leap, this is the place to start! Author, de­signer and teacher Bon­nie Barker has self­pub­lished the per­fect tu­to­rial pat­tern book filled with 18 beau­ti­ful de­signs. What makes this book so special and unique is that each pat­tern fea­tured in the book in­cludes an on­line link to a video tu­to­rial not just for right-handed cro­cheters but left­ies as well! It’s like hav­ing Bon­nie sit right be­side you, guid­ing you through each project step by step!

I de­cided to try the Abi­gail Scarf & Shawl pat­tern. Fol­low­ing Bon­nie’s YouTube tu­to­rial row by row gave me con­fi­dence to work through this beau­ti­ful shawl, which fea­tures a gor­geous Celtic weave ca­ble. Be­ing able to stop and re-watch the dif­fi­cult parts helped me work through the trick­ier rows in the shawl.

With this suc­cess, I am hooked and ready to take on an­other ca­ble project with Bon­nie by my side as my own pri­vate in­struc­tor through the world of YouTube!
