    That is so… I don’t know. Amazing, spectacular? I was just looking at that book, and this pattern is definitely more beautiful in color!

    I have the first two books but after seeing this I must have the third as well. This is just too beautiful and I must have the stitch pattern.

    (I´m too lazy to try to figure it out from the picture)

    thank goodness someone knows how to knit this cable! i’ve seen it in several patterns that have been published recently and they have either been charted incorrectly and knitted in the sample garments incorrectly. or both!!!!

    it’s such a beautiful cable….as another commenter said “it’s art”…

    This group does not send stitch patterns or try to violate the copyright of the Walker Treasuries. You may find the pattern here as noted by the knitter of the swatch:
