This book was developed to settle a common crocheter’s dilemma:  loving the look of knitted cables, but preferring the technique of crochet. Worked using a similar method that involves twisting or braiding strips crocheted in simple stitches, there are 20 different cable stitch patterns (and 5 cable-ready projects) to choose from!

This book is great. I stumbled across it on KnitPicks. I can't believe I hadn't heard about it before, though. First of all, the crochet cables in this book aren't your typical cables--they're made with simple stitches, and they're quick and easy. The most impressive part is how much these crochet cables look like knitted cables, despite the simple techniques used to create them. Take a look at the pictures from the book posted on the KnitPicks site to see what I mean. I've always loved cables, but I don't like the tedious and lengthy traditional techniques involved with crocheting or knitting the complex cables that I love the most. Discovering this book has changed all of that!
