Upcoming Cable Books from Ann Kingstone and Arnall-Culliford Knitwear

Here's some news to brighten up a cold February: two of our favourite British designers have announced forthcoming pattern book releases. That gives us something to look forward to on these cold, cold nights.

Firstly, Yorkshire designer Ann Kingstone is to publish a print book in late February or March of her Cabled Knits patterns. It doesn't come cheap, at £25 for the print book or £33.50 for the print and ebook option (both prices don't include P&P), but if you buy the ebook it costs a much more manageable £14.45 with a 15% introductory discount.

Cabled Knits will contain 16 skilful patterns for novice and experienced knitters alike, all of which use British wool. Woodkirk (see the image on the left) is our favourite, featuring the tree of life motif on the back.

Other patterns include accessories, cardigans and jumpers. We hope to review the whole collection when the print book is published.

Meanwhile Jen and Jim Arnall-Culliford, aka Arnall-Culliford Knitwear, announced in their latest newsletter that plans are well underway for their new book Something New To Learn About Cables. As per their previous book, A Year of Techniques, the pair will include their own patterns that teach a new skill to the knitter. Pre-orders for the book will open on their website the week commencing February 19th.

Time to dig out your cable needles!
