Additional Information

An ardent collector of knit patterns, Rita Weiss was always fascinated with the beautiful Aran sweaters that supposedly came from the Aran Islands off the coast of Ireland. She loved the stories that accompanied them and the idea that each stitch had a special meaning. Even though historians now are saying the stories were all a myth used as a marketing tool, Rita never stopped loving the patterns.

She shares 50 favorites here. Each can be worked in any yarn you choose, either in "multiples" (the number of stitches needed to complete one unit of the pattern) or in "panels" with a specific stitch count. Patterns include Cathedral Cables, Rapunzel's Cable, Tied Ropes, Desert Sand, Blarney Kiss, Quilted Cables, Diamond Windows, and more.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I'm very pleased with this book. I ordered it to learn about the honeycomb pattern for a cowl I saw in Dublin. It is jam packed with lovely cables and other types of interesting stitches. The book cover says fabulous and it is. The instructions for the various stitches are well thought out and include the number of stitches needed for the stitch and necessary side stitches. If you would like to try your hand at designing a project yourself, this is the book for you.
This book is well-organized and it is full of patterns. The patterns are set up with a minimal border to slip into any project design. The pictures are clear. A no fuss resource to flip and pick from.
Edit: I am changing my review after using the book for awhile and reducing my stars to 4.
The reason... There are no charts!
I realized I really wanted charts and written patterns. I know it's a pain to chart cables, but sometimes it is necessary to see how the stitches relate to each other. The written pattern is in big print and the charts could have easily fit on the pattern pages.
I love the Leisure Arts craft books. I recently learned how to cable knit, but find that so many cable knit patterns are written in a confusing way but this book continues it's reputation of providing excellent colored pictures of the final product with easy to follow knitting instructions.
