Class - Cable Workshop: Saturday, September 29, from 11:00am-1:00pm; with Parna Description
Learn to knit cables! It’s easier than you expect, and so much fun. This class will cover both the actual knitting techniques and how to read those crazy-looking cable charts. This class does not cover a particular project involving cables, but we will swatch to learn cabling techniques and experiment with various cables. If you have a pattern you’d like to try, feel free to bring it with you, and we’ll cover it if we have time.
