Description

Conquering cable knitting is simply a matter of knitting your stitches in the proper order. Right leaning or left leaning, back and forth or in the round, with or without a cable needle, Sarah will help you get it all sorted out. And while we’re at it, let’s demystify those wacky chart symbols, and whip a few mis-crossed cables into shape.

Week One, we’ll start out nice and straight, sampling traditional rope cables. By Week Two, we’ll have a cozy hat on the needles, running circles around slightly more challenging travelling cables!

Note

  • All knitting class sessions will take place online via Zoom at the appointed times only, and will not be recorded.
  • A Zoom link will be emailed to each student 24 hours prior to each upcoming class session.
  • The online instruction will consist of two windows: one with Sarah’s smiling face, and one with on-camera close-ups for demonstration purposes. Each student’s smiling face will also be viewable in a window.
  • Each student will be responsible for using Zoom (super easy by clicking on a link) on an electronic device that is large enough for the instructor window and demonstration window to be clearly viewed.
  • No refunds.
