There are various types of color cables — one-color cables on contrasting background, bicolor cables, pinstripe cables, different colors within more complex cable structures.
Harry will help you navigate their twists and turns and show you how to convert a cable chart into a color cable schematic using graph paper and/or a charting program.
Bring your colored pencils for some creative colorful fun and then swatch/knit up your creation.
