Easy Reversible Cables
With Jolie Elder
Oct 10, 1:00-3:00pm CDT
If you’ve ever made a cabled scarf or blanket, you know that it is only partly satisfying. One side is an array of beautiful cables, but the other side is obviously the wrong side. What if there was a way to make both sides look good without resorting to double-knitting? And there is!
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
Jolie will give you an overview of ways to work cables reversibly including cabling on wide ribs, ribbles (cables on k1, p1 or k2, p2 rib), and twists (faux cables made by twisting a group of stitches 180 degrees). Alas! These tricks don’t work for all types of cables; but we will look at when they can and can’t be applied.
You will see many swatches, and go home with a scarf pattern to hone your skills.
