Hey guys, anyone know of a good source for free online cable patterns? I'm in Japan, and my knitting books are in the U.S., and I'd like to add cables to the arms/shoulders of a saddle-shouldered sweater I'm making my father. I'd like something Celtic-braid-y and traditional and masculine. Any favorites? What Liam Neeson wear?

KnitScene has the Notting Hill Vest pattern available to download for free. it's cabled, and maybe you could knock off the cable pattern used.

Knitting Daily also has a large free archive of Interweave patterns available to subscribers (oh and it's free)

have you tried Knitty? i think i've seen some manly cables there too.
