Once you’ve mastered the beginner knitting techniques from our spring workshop, make your next project amazing with cable knitting. Make your own cabled headband/earwarmer using your newly acquired cabling skills. These same cables are used in sweaters, socks, and scarves. We will cover how to make left-leaning & right-leaning cables, as well as how to figure the proper number of stitches to cast on when incorporating a cable pattern into a piece.
All materials provided
• Knitting needles
• Yarn for project
• Knitting Essentials kit (includes special needle for cable knitting)
• Project pattern
• Written instructions for all techniques covered in class
• List of continued learning resources
• Stretchy cast-on (especially good for socks, headbands, & sweaters)
• Balancing Cables

• Reading cable charts
• Figuring multiples of pattern repeats for cables

Required skills: Students must be comfortable with a basic cast-on & bind-off, as well as have a mastery of the knit stitch and purl stitch. This class will not cover these techniques, but will build on them as the foundation of more advanced knitting.
