Lily Chin Knits Power Cables

May 17, 2010

I've been waiting so eagerly for Lily Chin's new book Power Cables and it's finally here. Leave it to Lily to come up with a book that totally demystifies cables and gives A TON of cable patterns and projects that use these cables inventively and beautifully.

Lily excels at making complicated knitting directions clear and accessible, and Power Cables is no different. I've done lots of cabling, and I learned several new things within five minutes of reading Lily's book.

Here's Lily on Knitting Daily TV talking about several of the projects in her new book. Enjoy!

I know you can't wait to start cabling like Lily, so here's the 5-Way Cable Wrap from the book, a free pattern to get you going until you get your copy of Power Cables

The Cable Wrap is the epitome of versatility. Wear it as a stole, a shrug, a poncho-the options are so varied that you'll find yourself reaching for it again and again.

And it's an addictive knit, too; you'll want to see those cables develop quickly!

Hello! I love the 5 Way Cable Wrap from Lily Chin. The pattern calls for wool yarn. Is there another yarn I could use that would hold its shape such as a cotton/silk? I would like to wear it for spring and summer. Thank you so much for your feedback!

I learned how to knit in Germany. I use the pick method. One thing puzzled me for a long time: Why are double ended needles sold in sets of four. I always had to buy two sets. Today on your show- I  learned why:  you only use 3 needles to make socks!! -this looks so uncomfortable !  I always divide the stitches on four needles and use the 5th to go around-much easier to hold and knit..

Maybe, you would like to try this.
