What it's All About

Fiona would like to teach the whole world how to knit cables because she LOVES the technique! In this workshop she will show you how to twist in a number of different ways, how to read charts and how to add cables to simple projects for stunning details. This workshop is a must for newer knitters who love the look of texture, or knitters who need a refresher with a twist. Bonus! Upon completion of this class, graduates who successfully twist their stitches in a way that pleases them, will be awarded an exclusive pattern by Fiona Ellis for River City Yarns: the Geneva Hat and Mitts set.

This two-hour class takes place on Saturday, January 13 starting at 11:00 am PST, 12:00 pm MST, 1:00 pm CST, 2:00 pm EST, 3:00 pm AST.

Materials: ball of light coloured medium weight yarn, yarn appropriate needles, cable needle.

Homework: none

    Skill Level: you know how to knit and purl, you've worked a decrease and an increase (or two). 

    After attending the class students will have learned the cable skills to be able to knit these highlighted patterns from Fiona’s Ravelry page:
