      3.5 stars I like knitting cables and the designs in this book are pretty and the style of sweater i like to knit and wear The instructions and diagrams are very clear and suitable for beginner middle skills.What i didnt like so much is that almost all the sweaters have a similar construction ranglan seamed I would have liked to have some seamless options some of the sweaters in the pictures seem to be a bit oversized i hope it is just that the prototypes were too big for the models and not that [...]

      I m a passionate knitter I love the process and the structure of building up a fabric stitch by stitch I m also a sewist sewer and enjoy that also, but one thing I enjoy very much about knitting is that you can and do shape the pattern pieces as you make them That s awesome.Anyhow, these patterns really exploit all of the positive things about knitted structure and shaping Almost all of them are really classic and well fitted there are a few loose and flowing items, like the oversized wrap p.40 [...]

      Contemporary Cables Classic Aran Reimagined in Current Styles by Jody LongViewed this book on my tablet so the paperback copy might be a bit different.Always been fascinated by knitted cables and what you can do with them as I experiment myselfarts out with an introduction from the author about what fascinated her at the beginning.Each sweater is pictured along with its name and book page number for easy reference.Love the very basic of diamonds with seed stitch, you can see the stitches clearly [...]

      This book offers a wide range of patterns, both written and charted, for projects which put cables front and centre In this sense, it is a very handy book to be able to refer to when looking for ways to use cables in contemporary designs This book strikes me as good value for anyone interested in embarking on cable knitting My favourite patterns were the sweater you see on the front cover Rapunzel there are a few images of it on Ravelry , a cropped boxy cardigan, a glorious oversized wrap, and [...]

    5. Sharon Mensing says:

      The author gives a good overview of basic cable techniques, the cable cast on, as well as how to substitute yarns Most of the patterns use thick yarn worsted or heavier and should knit up quickly, but because of this there is a definite chunky feel to the items Among the 21 patterns, there is a nice range of items, including sweaters for both men and women, scarfs, mittens, a hat, a tote, and wraps Patterns are charted, so although the difficulty level ranges from intermediate to advanced, the a [...]

      I received a free ARC of this book from NetGalley for an unbiased opinion.As the title of the book says, it is a book of classic aran sweater designs re imagined in current styles There s beautiful vests and wraps as well as the classic style sweaters one associates with Aran.In addition to containing sweaters, the book does also include several wraps, a scarf, a bag, mittens and a beret The cables are all strictly charted out, so if a knitted does not know how to read charts yet, it s not an id [...]

      I hope the quality of photography is better in the physical book and final digital edition, because the e galley I received was atrocious shadows so bad you couldn t see the models eyes, horrible glare on every picture it hurt my eyes so bad I could only look at it for short periods of time without getting a headache There weren t many designs I would want to knit although I did love the cabled dress , but I would strongly disagree with these being contemporary designs rather I felt like many wo [...]

      This book contains a wide variety of projects, as well as a range of skill levels There are several small projects for beginners, such as scarf, hat, and mittens But there are also some intermediate projects on a larger scale, such as dresses and sweaters both men s and women s I like that this book is focused on cables cables are some of the easiest things to learn, but make the biggest textural impact in your work For some reason I find knitting cables very relaxing This book does require some [...]

      I really like this book I have a fair amount of knitting experience but I am far from an advanced knitter and cables are always a challenge to me I decided to start with a small item and have begun with the beret and have found the instructions very easy to follow This has given me enough confidence that after this project, I am going to move on to the two color cardigan and there are several other sweaters that I have my eye on as well I think this will be a book that I refer to often.I won a c [...]

      I would recommend this book for a knitter with a medium skill set The patterns are interesting with clear instructions, schematics, and charts The yarn choices are lovely and there are a number of sweaters I would like to make The only think I did not like was the strange braided headpiece they put on the model in a number of the photographs I would definitely add this book to my collection.

    11. Polly Krize says:

      I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.A very well put together book with new twists on the classic Aran style of knitting in sweaters and accessories With graphed and written instructions for each project, this is well worth reading and purchasing for knitters everywhere The oversized wrap is simply gorgeous

    12. Ryan says:

      A lovely Knitting book It has multiple project, mostly sweaters for him and for her If you are a chunky girl, this book is not for you But the shrugs, hats and tote patterns look fun If the classic shrug pattern was in my size, it would go on my to be made this winter pile Otherwise, not a bad book, but the model s hair is annoying It just bugs me.

    13. SherleyB says:

      aka SherleyB Mmm lovely cables some of the items are great shall see me making them.Sadly I do wish that they would still write the pattern out have never been to sureof the graph pattern idea Still shall be having a go

      Contemporary Cables is a keeper.Contemporary Cables is a great resource for people who enjoy knitting cables I have to say, Jody Long is a very talented designer All of his designs are elegant and timeless, simply beautiful to look at Just from glancing at the pictures in the book, I instantly felt that Jody Long really understands the art of designing cabled sweaters and cardigans And on top of this he elegantly translates his patterns into easy to understand directions with easy to read knitti [...]

      I have yet to knit anything from this book and I don t know if I will If I saw this book at the bookstore and flipped through it, I would have put the book back on the shelf My biggest issue is the females model s hair I understand that they are trying to reinforce the cable theme But it s driving me crazy the crown braid is almost falling into her face and it looks like some one put a wig on her and it s falling off.

    16. Corrie says:

      Most of the patterns in this felt too outdated for my personal Millennial style which is interesting considering the title but there were one or two patterns I may make in the future.

    17. Angela says:

      Beautiful CablesThis book has some wonderful cable patterns and is suited to intermediate or advanced knitters The designs are modernized classics which are richly textured They are shown to great advantage in the lovely colourful photographs A book to browse through many times and perhaps to dream of knitting the designs.My thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing a digital review copy.
