Today’s post brought me an exciting new knitting book, ‘Cable Fashion Drama.’ I love getting new books and patterns to try but this one might pose a few problems as it’s all in Japanese and I can just about count to 100 in German! I decided to get it anyway though because even if it was just to look at the designs and lovely photographs it would be worth it!

However, it does seem that with a bit of brain power and some of your own interpretation knitting the patterns from this book is totally doable! Every pattern has it’s own chart and each of the symbols on the chart have detailed step by step illustrations of each stitch! Even if you are not knitting one of the items in the book it gives you some fantastic ideas for your own work and different cable stitches to use. I’ve only ever dabbled with basic cables so can’t wait to try out some of these!
