Cables are not just for knitters anymore! Crocheters have discovered an easy way to get the look using Post Stitches. These stitches add texture on top of the crocheted fabric because they are worked around the post of a stitch on a previous row. In this Beginner's Guide to Crochet Cables, you'll learn how to combine and cross Post Stitches to create ropes and other cable patterns. Camera icons let you know when there are free online videos to help you learn the techniques. All made using medium weight yarn, the six designs by Melissa Leapman are Rope Cable Infinity Cowl, Diamonds Throw Pillow, Sexton Braid Hat, Ballykeeran Fingerless Mitts, Heirloom Aran Afghan and Innisberry Pullover.
