ISO elsebeth lavold-style cables
i'm just wondering if there are any free cables out there on the web similar to Elsebeth Lavold's gorgeous cables. i tried googling for it and links to her books on amazon and the like came up, but not much else (besides her yarn).

TIA!

I hope you don't hate me for this-- which is, there is at least one pattern out there, and I don't know how to find it! It was on this site within the past month or so, and it's a long coat, shown in grey, or a cardigan, shown in white, depending on which way you wanted to make it. The thread was titled something like "beautiful coat". I did some searching around and just couldn't find it. But if you want to go hunting, it was either in General Knitting, Pattern Central, or How-to Questions.

It sounds like Brittyknits is describing this: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60721AD.html

or maybe this one: http://www.tahkistacycharles.com/fre...98e438dfcb0807

Try getting Vogue Knitting Stitchionary 2/Cables. I just checked this book out of my library - it's a whole book of cable sitch designs/charts.

Found it!!! http://docs.google.com/View?docid=dctqn9j6_6d8vpnr
Scroll down to see the coat, and look at the detailing on the back.

i am actually completely in love with that sweater and am considering knitting it as my first personal sweater.
what i'm looking for is a cable pattern that only takes up about 12 or 13 stitches. i want to knit some wristwarmers with a cable down the center back. i love the angularity (new word ) of EL's cables. i really like regular cables, too, but for this project EL's are pretty close to perfect.

i really wish my borders carried that one. i have a bunch of 30% off coupons.

ETA: alrighty. i just checked it out over at KP and i will definitely be ordering it soon. i'd tell you how cheap it is, but then you guys would buy them all and there wouldn't be one left for me!

alright, i caved. it's a whopping 37% off. that totally justifies the $3 shipping.
