Inspiration for twist and cable designs can be seen everywhere in the natural world and the urban environment, from the cracks in the pavement to building walls, posts and pillars. In A Knitter's Sketchbook: Design Inspiration for Twists and Cables, creative designer Emma Vining shares her experience of capturing pattern ideas in many diverse locations and settings, offering a design-led approach to creating unique knitting stitch patterns.

This book can be used in many different ways: as a stitch library, a collection of knitting patterns or as a starting point to inspire designs for a personalized knitter's sketchbook.
