CREATIVE CABLES

DEBBIE BLISS YARN COLLECTION    Book Number: 89334    Product format: Hardback

Debbie Bliss is the very best of contemporary knitwear designers with timeless and wearable garments to her name. This guide is an explosion of creativity with 25 innovative designs created from Debbie Bliss Rialto yarns including stylish cardigans, pullovers and dresses, ornately woven socks, wristers and cowls, as well as funky clothing for children and suave sweaters for men. The yarn is stunning, extra-fine merino wool that is produced in a range of weights and colours which look beautiful in different variants of cables. Debbie has personally handpicked notable designers to create stunning pieces to be tried at home, from a cocoon cardigan and peplum sweater by Jacqueline van Dillen, to an oversized t-shirt by Mari Lynn Patrick which features a vertical eyelet detail along an undulating cable as well as a cable and ladder pullover by Melissa Leapman which requires a cosy, chunky-weight yarn. Fisherman styles of Aran and Gansey jumpers have been an inspiration for Debbie Bliss and her love of this great stitch is reflected in her suggested designs. The eager knitter can take on the challenge of a colour-block skirt dress, a rice stitch bustier, and a zippered hoodie. Each design is outlined in thorough detail, guiding the knitter step-by-step, and every piece has a list including the stitch glossary, panel patterns and outlines on each part of the piece. Every knitted design features a fact box with details on knitted measurements, the necessary materials and a gauge of stitches and rows. There are also clear diagrams to identify the shape of different parts of the clothes prior to sewing them together for designs like the transverse cable coat and the patchwork poncho. Colourful photos show models wearing the garments too, showing how a knitter can style a stunning reversible Mobius cowl, a folded front vest and twisted stitch socks. As a useful addition, helpful information is included at the back of the book with a skill level key, advice on yarns with details on different ply and useful techniques explaining 'cables', 'yarn overs' and 'picking up stitches.' Find bliss in the beautiful designs that can be made with love and worn with pride. 8.9" x 10.3", colour photos and detailed diagrams, 146pp.
