Class Description: Cabling is a technique for creating textural twists, plaits, braids, and other designs in your knitted projects. The most well known use of cables is the traditional Aran Fisherman’s Sweaters. The basic technique for creating these textures is through the rearrangement of the order the stitches are worked. In this series we have worked through several projects of increasing complexity, giving you the opportunity to gradually learn new skills.
Section One began by learning basic twists combined with texture. We knitted the Green Forest headband by Renata Ridley.
Section Two incorporated our new skills with traveling stitches and knitting in the round with Stovetop by Tin Can Knits.
Section Three we are moved onto creating your own small projects like throw pillows, cowls, hats or mitts.
Section Four you may choose your own cabled project at any skill level from beginner on up. This section will be 4 parts.
