If you’re following along with the Harmony Blanket Knit Along, you probably love learning new knitting stitch patterns as much as I do. For each of the 10 patterns I’m designing in the Harmony Blanket KAL, I’m highlighting the book where I came across the stitch pattern. I found the pattern for the uneven cable in Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book: Completely Revised & Updated by the Editors of Vogue Knitting Magazine, my new favorite knitting reference book. You can read my full review here (and, if you’re seeing this on or before July 11, 2018, you can also enter the giveaway for your chance to win a copy).
