In the Company of Cables

Taught by:

Karen Templer

Offered:

Thursday June 8th - CLOSED
Friday June 9th - CLOSED
Saturday June 10th - CLOSED

Experience level: Advanced Beginner*

In this class, we will dive deep into exploring the twists and turns of creating cables all the while knitting a darling cabled hat (an original pattern designed just for this workshop!)
Together we will
  • learn the simple mechanics of knitting a cable twist
  • talk about how to knit from charts
  • clarify how to measure a cable swatch
  • discuss why and how yarn choice affects the success of your cables
  • explore the anatomy of more complex cables, braids and diamonds
  • and, best of all, how to fix mistakes.

*Skill Level: Beginner-ish. You must be comfortable knitting and purling in the same row, working k2tog and SSK decreases, and knitting in the round.

PLEASE NOTE: per Karen, this is a beginner intro to cables. However, if you are already comfortable with cables, Karen will show you some of her personal tips and tricks to make cabling easier and even more fun. Everyone will come away with this sweet hat!
