Even if you're not an advanced crocheter, but you're tired of working patterns up with simple single crochet and double crochet stitches, then it might be time to up the ante. In Celtic Cable Crochet you'll warm up your wardrobe with amazingly beautiful cabled pieces.  In this 128-page book, the author and fiber artist Bonnie Baker debuts 18 crochet patterns for modern cabled garments and accessories. With step-by-step instructions and beautiful photography you will drool over each of the patterns provided; Bonnie will show you how to master the intricate technique.

From sophisticated sweaters, ponchos and shawls to stylish scarves, hats and gloves, there is nothing in this book that you won't love. The textures, designs and button finishes will truly make your designs seem store-bought. That in itself will feel like a great accomplishment.

The visual stitch dictionary toward the back of the book will never make you second guess a stitch. The photos are so clear that it seems as if an instructor is right in front of you teaching you how to do each one. From beginner stitches to the more advanced, you’ll learn everything from single crochet and front post treble crochet to arrow/reverse arrow, celtic weave and honeycomb cable, among many others.

Whether you're crocheting for yourself or gifting something for a friend, you will certainly feel proud of the pattern you work up. Many of the patterns are listed as intermediate skill level, but with the stitch dictionary and clear photos, you can easily learn how to work cabled crochet.

I love trying new different stitches so like to make scarves or small items, ie baby blankets, etc.

I like quick items that I can gift. This weekend I am working on crocodile stitch fingerless gloves for a coworker.

I love making afghans. I also like making baby things, toys and those little critters (I can never pronouce that Japanese word for them). I'm starting to stretch my wings and trying sweaters and the like.

Doilies, granny squares, pillow covers, blankets or table cloth

I like making blankets, I was taught by my grandmother when I was a child. But approx 4 years ago I tore a cartlage in my knee and to keep myself from going stir crazy I picked up crocheting again and started making blankets for family and friends...my leg is better but I'm still making blankets I enjoy crocheting and my blankets are enjoyed by those who recieve them...

I like to crochet scarves when I have time. I have done them and sold some, but usually, I just give them away, and I am currently working on one for my husband of 14 days. He likes everything I do, but I don't have a picture of any I have done.
