Cables are a stunning way to introduce pattern and texture into your knitting and adding colour can produce dramatic effects!
In this small class, we will learn two methods of adding colour to our cables. First, we will create a striking, cabled panel, by learning how to knit cables in a contrasting colour using the intarsia method. Our second panel uses stranded knitting techniques to create a wonderfully textured fabric in two colours. These panels have been designed to be sewn together to create a beautiful case for your essential knitting accessories.
