Cozy Cables Review
A Bit About the Author
"Kalurah Hudson is the knitwear designer and photographer behind While They Play Designs. Her work has been featured in Vogue Knitting, and she has collaborated with brands like Malabrigo, KnitPicks, KnitCrate and We Are Knitters, among others. Kalurah also contributed to the book Highland Knits: Knitwear Inspired by the Outlander Series, published by Interweave in 2016. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and three children."
In her own words: "Cozy Cables is the culmination of the past decade-plus that I have spent designing knitwear patterns. From the very beginning of my knitting journey, the driving force behind wanting to learn this incredible craft was cables. As I looked around me, whether it was in films or magazines or out on the street, I noticed beautiful cable-knit patterns that jumped off the wearer and directly into my field of view. I could not look away. And so, my fascination with cables began." You can check out her Etsy shop at etsy.com/shop/whiletheyplay
SIXTEEN CUDDLE-READY KNIT PATTERNS
Cozy Cables starts off with the fundamentals of cable knitting. From yarn and needles, to how to read charts and instructions, this book is a great way to get started with cabling! She's included lots of tips and tricks to help knitters of all levels.
After covering the basics, it's time to dive into this cozy pile of patterns! The patterns are divided into four categories, all taking an increasing amount of time, attention, and skill. Up first are the Quick Cables - basic stitches using bulky yarn. (Right up my alley!)
The next section is Portable Cables - small, grab-and-go projects that are quick to memorize. Okay, maybe this is my favorite category? I love them all!
Up next in Cozy Cables is the Gifting Cables section! This includes more intricate patterns and things you'd want to make for those nearest and dearest. Get started now for an easy holiday (that's what I say every January...)!
And wrapping things up are the Self-Care Cables. This last grouping is described as "engaging, yet meditative." Make something special for someone special - you!
Overall, this is a gorgeous collection of patterns and one you'll pull from again and again!
And you get to try one for free!

I love cables. I will add this to my shopping list at Amazon
Wow these items look amazing. I am a pretty new knitter and can't wait to try cables. This book is definitely inspiration to try something new.
I was terrified of cables until I realized how incredibly easy they are. I love them! Thank you for the giveaway.
