Swedish knitting phenom Ivar Asplund learned how to work cabling from his grandmother and was smitten right away—such marvelously intricate designs, and yet at their heart the underlying principles were so simple. A few stitches trading places here and there, and suddenly flowing braids, interwoven figures of eight, or classic x-and-o patterns came to life before his eyes.

In this compelling collection, Asplund invites knitters to join him in exploring the possibilities, combining his grandmother's well-loved lessons in classic and time-tested cable knitting techniques with the elegant simplicity of contemporary Scandinavian design. You'll find over 20 projects, ranging from sweaters, cardigans, and ponchos to scarves, wrist warmers, and hats—for children and adults—that offer an attractive balance of historic and modern elements, as well as superior fit. Step-by-step pattern instructions guide novice cablers through straightforward reversible projects and eye-catching cable repeats; veterans can test their skills on larger, more complex garments with multiple cable panels; and a tutorial section explains the fundamentals of working and combining cables in any design to achieve a variety of striking effects.
