Learn at least 5 methods of doing reversible cables, how to chart them, and how to design your own!
Learn all of Lily’s methods of creating cables on both sides of a fabric. This in-depth exploration will leave you with more ideas for reversible scarves, wraps, shawls, and throws than you can ever knit.
Begin with simple cable techniques with the bonus of learning to make cables without a cable needle.
Advance to fully moving and expanding cables that travel and flow across a whole fabric surface. These aren’t just the same old vertical-rope cables. These are traveling cables and each side need not be the same!
Then become familiar with a unique, 2-colored, vertically pinstriped reversible cable effect. There’s even an usual, textured, reversible cable! You must experience these cables to believe them.
Lily will coach you on how to develop your own cable patterns and show you a revolutionary way to chart them ahead of time. Train your eye to read and understand someone else’s patterns for quick understanding. Amaze your knitting friends!
