Learn Cable Knitting

Cabled Coffee Cup Sleeve

Have you seen the new fall magazines featuring gorgeous cabled sweaters?  Good news – cable knitting is easier than it looks!  If you know how to knit & purl, this 2-hour class will help you take your knitting to a new level.

Learn how to read text instructions and charts, and make a cabled coffee cup sleeve (pictured) with or without buttons.  Learn about different types of cables, and get tips on project planning and adding cables to favorite patterns.

This is not a ‘learn to knit’ class, but is appropriate for all levels of  knitters.  Participants need to be able to knit & purl, cast on, increase, decrease and bind off.
