Do you love the intricate, lush look of cabled sweaters, but feel nervous about learning to cable? Cables are just rearranged stitches and in this hands-on workshop expert knitter, teacher, and designer Andrea Rangel will guide you through everything you’ll need to know to take on that gorgeous cabled project. Learn how to read those cryptic cable charts and abbreviations, and practice many different kinds of cables. If you already know the basics, this class will expand on those for you – you’ll get information on how cabled fabric acts and feels different from plain Stockinette (and what that means for your project), as well as handy tricks like how to cable without a cable needle and how to count rows in cabled fabric. Expand your knitting possibilities – get cabling!
