Class Description:

Once you know how to knit and purl, knitting becomes even more fun when you learn to twist stitches!  Cables are stitches that cross one another.  It may look complicated, but it’s quite easy. In this class, students will:

– Learn the basics of cables by knitting a six stitch Basic Cable pattern

– Learn techniques to create a beautiful scarf or fingerless gloves

– Learn to read a pattern, repeat patterns, review a chart and learn to read a yarn label and understand what it means

This class can be taken as either a refresher or as an intro-to cables class, however, students must know how to knit, purl, cast on and cast off. Once you know how to cable, you’ll be including them into everything and can make all of those fun chunky cowls and boot toppers.

Registration necessary, class size limited to 20.
