Trendwatch: Cables

When we are out and about talking to knitters, the topic of cables comes up quite a bit. Experienced cable knitters tell us how much they love them and when we teach a cable novice how to tackle this simple technique they are amazed how easy they are.

Everyone agrees that cables are a little piece of knitting magic, a simple technique that looks super complicated – have a look at it here.

So it was great to spot an article in the Telegraph on must-have jumper trends which picked out cable knits as a strong winter trend. It is a great excuse to cast on a new cabley project.

Cables work on oversized jumpers (another trend), fitted pieces and accessories so whatever your knitting choices there is a cable pattern for you. With this in mind we’ve picked out a few pattern to get you started.
