Description ~ Designing with Cables

Working highly textured patterns such as cables into your garments and other projects poses a few challenges that aren’t present when knitting simpler patterns. In this class you’ll learn how to balance cable patterns both vertically and horizontally and, very importantly, how to get the right width. We’ll cover coping with take-up and splay, and dabble a bit in increasing and decreasing in cable patterns.

Materials Needed ~ Designing with Cables

DK or worsted weight wool with appropriate needles, cable needle. Other usual supplies: pencil, scissors, etc.

Homework ~ Designing with Cables

None, but please have your yarn wound and ready to knit with.
