Cables, Tips & Techniques
Do you love gorgeous cable knits? Do you find that working cables slows you down a lot? Even if you are new to cable knitting, this class is for you. We will learn how to cross those cables in various configurations without the assistance of a cable needle. Once you learn this technique you can cut out that step where you have to look up the text translation of the charted symbol. Imagine cabling without looking up how to get them done!
A tidy appearance is important, too. Have you noticed in your ribbing and cables that the left-most knit stitch looks sloppy? We will learn why it happens and then teach that stitch some manners! Class also includes tips for keeping track of when it's time for that cabling action row.
What we'll learn is nothing new to knitting. The photo includes an illustration from a decades-old Estonian knitting book. Fascinating!
Time permitting, we will tinker with cable surgery and fixing mistakes.
