Celtic Cables with Melissa Leapman
Learn how to use basic cabling techniques to create Celtic-inspired knots, panels, and motifs. These special designs include unusual circular elements rather than the typical vertical alignment of most cables. (Shhh don't tell anyone, but these gorgeous cables are much easier than they look!)
Homework swatches with yarn attached and needles used; light-colored, smooth, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn; two 4mm/US 6 double pointed needles; graph paper (4 or 5 squares per inch), pencil.
Optional: graph paper (4 or 5 squares per inch), pencil.
Make 3 swatches with light-colored, smooth, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn, preferably wool, and appropriate needles as follows:
Swatch 1: Cast on 15 sts. Work k1, p1 rib for 1" then continue in stockinette stitch until piece measures approximately 2" from beginning, end after RS row. Do not cut yarn; place stitches onto holder.
Swatch 2: Cast on 20 stitches. Complete same as swatch 1.
Swatch 3: Cast on 36 stitches. Complete same as swatch 1.
