Class Details:

Design a cabled hat without the hard work. Choose from a variety of different cable charts designed for the class and learn how to complete your hat by following prewritten design templates for a beanie, slouchy hat, or beret. All three styles can be knit seamlessly in the round or flat, then seamed. Experience reading charts is helpful, but if you’ve never done it before, you can learn it here. The variety of charts will include a range of difficulty so intermediate or advanced knitters can forge ahead and take on a more challenging chart while beginners can keep it simple.

Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease

Homework:

Test your yarn and needle combination to make sure it makes an attractive, firm fabric at 5 sts/inch. Bring your blocked swatch to class.

Supplies to Bring:

Approximately 200 yd of worsted-weight yarn with gauge 20 sts/4 inches (10cm). Needles to get gauge + 2 sizes smaller, your choice of straight, two circulars, or double points. Cable needle or double-pointed needle to use as a cable needle.
