Class will cover:
Increasing in cables using yarnover hidden in cable crosses
Decreasing in cables using a cable needle
Working cables without a cable needle
Understanding how shaped cables interact with the space on your project
Skill Level:
intermediate
Skill Details:
Students should have a basic understanding of and ability to make cables with a cable needle, work basic decreases and increases (ssk, k2tog, yo) as well as be able to cast on, knit, and purl.
