Cable Crochet Made Easy
By Bonnie Barker, self-published, 2017, 72 pages, $15.95
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!
