Making Cables Make Sense – Joanne Bint

You see knitted cables everywhere. You really like the look of them but you’re just not sure if you can figure out how to knit them. This is the class for you.

We’ll explore a tiny little bit of the history of cable knitting discuss the basics of making a knitted cable, before delving into standard instructions and variations.

We’ll discuss the effect that different yarn colourways can have on your finished project, and the benefits of blocking and gauge.

We’ll practice lots of different cable crosses and try cabling without a cable needle too, using charted and written instructions.

Our swatches will become knitted bookmarks so you can admire your fancy stitches while you choose your next project!
