Adventure Knits: Brave New Stitch Crossings and 19 Knitting Patterns
Author: Meghan Jones
Get ready for a mind-blowing adventure in cables! In this exploration of cable knitting, Meghan Jones goes way beyond the traditional cables of knit stitches crossing over purl stitches. Instead of stopping the overall patterning of the garment when she reaches the cables, she continues the stitch pattern through the cables, working lace, textures, colorwork, and even cables on top of other cables. It is truly an innovative approach to cables and one that will have you drooling over the possibilities. Meghan explains her cable-making process step by step, showing you how to work her charts and patterns. Once you’ve got the basics, you are ready to work her 19 patterns for sweaters, wraps, socks, and more using her inventive cables. The patterns are divided into five sections based on the type of stitch pattern that is being cabled: texture stitches, lace stitches, cabled stitches, mosaic stitches, and stranded stitches. Pull out those cable needles (or work without—Meghan shows you how and when you can skip the cable needles) and choose a pattern for your knitting adventure!
Meghan Jones has a BFA in Fibers and Textiles with graduating work on a Compu-Dobby loom and Japanese wax resist natural dyes, and past experience in painting, drawing, photography, and handcrafts. She lives and knits with her husband and their 4 children in the Inland Northwest where she tries to balance her love of knit design with nurturing a massive vegetable garden, cooking exciting meals, and parenting as intentionally as possible. Meghan has been designing knitting patterns for over a decade. She has worked extensively with magazines and yarn companies, and this is her first published book. In a twist of irony, she absolutely hated the only summer camp she was ever sent to and begged her parents never to send her back! This is not actually a secret to anyone who knows her, as organized activities are her nemesis and she would rather blaze a trail than follow a path.
