Cables, Tips & Techniques
Class Details:

Cables are beautiful and intricate, but oh my, do mistakes jump out. No need to live with them anymore. Crossed the wrong way, or on the wrong row? Or did you forget a cable entirely? No problem! If fear of fixing mistakes has kept you from trying out larger cable projects, no need to delay any longer. First we will deal with a bit of preventative medicine, going over basic chart reading as well as two tricks to reading your cables on your needle. Next up we will master fixes while your stitches are still on the needle, getting comfortable with unnkitting cables, dropping cables to move them to a different row and recross them. Finally we will learn some pretty amazing fixes you can make to your cables after your stitches have been bound off. Learn how crochet cotton and scissors can rebuild any cables! Go back and fix those past knitting mistakes, help is here! NOTE: there is some overlap with Advanced Knitting Fixes. Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; cables; chart reading NOTE: There is some overlap with Advanced Knitting Fixes
