Flipside Awesomeness: Reversible Cables
A virtual class with Harry Wells
Sept 10, 10:00am-12:00pm CDT
Learn to convert standard cables into reversible cables. See multiple examples including a rope cable, braid cable, lozenge cable, staghorn cable, and dancing cable — all with nothing to hide!
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 4 weeks following the event.
Cables are lovely…until you flip them over. Now learn how to make them reversible! Learn what can and cannot be reversed and two methods in developing reversible cable fabric. Many examples of cables—rope, lozenge, Celtic braid, horn and more—are covered with step-by-step examination and in-class exercises to convert them to reversible. Participants will be given several reversible sample stitch patterns to knit up.
