Reversible Cables / double sided - bought Power Cables
Hi!

Does anyone own "Power Cables" (Lily M. Chin)

Here: http://www.amazon.com/Power-Cables-U...1256944&sr=8-1


I came across the Knitting Daily episode of reversible cables and found the related book. It arrived here yesterday. And I started reading and trying when I got home last night.

There is some pretty great stuff in there, as I see right away. I still have to make my way through things and get used to her charting (very different, but very visual) and then make a project.

But the idea of making a cable pattern with an attractive back side (other than just the 1x1 ribbing bands I have heard of) seems great to me. scarfs, blankets, pieces of garment...
I love cables (not JUST cables).

So, does anyone have experience with this book? Likes? Dislikes?

I will keep posting my opinions on it, if anyone cares.

I just bought her Knitting Tips and Tricks. I like her so I'm sure that's an interesting book. I have knit reversible cables on a scarf once and I like the look of them much better than single sided. Let us know more about the book as you test it.


She has written a reversible cable pattern that I have been drooling over.
