Oh... the patterns are sooooooooo beautiful! I am in love with the cardigans, shawls, cowls... All instructions are very straight forward and easy to follow. The last chapter has step-by-step photographs of the foundation stitches used throughout the book, which helped me a lot.
I wanted to finish a project from the book before I flew back home, so I chose the Dublin Duo (all photographs published by permission of Interweave and F+W Media Inc.):
The cables look really nice, though, which is due to Bonnie's redesign of this traditional stitch. I also enjoyed working with a lighter yarn.
Lion Brand Yarns Size 4 (Medium weight) in color 113 Redwood, and crochet hook size J 10 (6 mm). The projects are soft thanks to the yarn and, possibly, to my stitches which aren't so tight.
One more Christmas present down, a bunch more to go. My next project from this book will have to be this scowl:
Super cute, huh? I may even do it in the color shown above.
Celtic Cable Crochet has 18 modern projects which are perfect for gifts or to add to your wardrobe. I am happy I decided to make the Dublin Duo! It was a fun break from sewing.
Enjoy your day,
