We will be working with every form of cable from travelling cables to freeform 3D cables to create beautiful abstract designs. We will explore dropped stitch cable, how to create a raised cable, how to travel your cables across the surface of your knit. This class will go through a variety of methods and include one or two special methods we use in our studio. An exciting and liberating look at a classic style of knitting.
Level: Intermediate to advanced
Skills needed: Cabling and reading charts for cables.
Materials to bring: Please bring size 4.5, 5, 5.5 and 6mm straight pins. Cable needles and a set of 4mm short dpns. We will be working on Aran weight yarn so do bring some of your favourite wools from your stash to be worked on the needle sizes mentioned up to chunky. We often yarn combine. i.e putting 2 DK weight yarns together, or a lace weight with an aran, to give a special look to the cable, so do bring finer weight yarns as well to add into the making.
Any “homework”?: For the 3D cabling it would be great if you could bring a sampler of stocking stitch 40sts x 40rows in aran weight yarn on 5mm needles as a base for this section of the class.
