Designing Socks with Cables Stitches with Janel Laidman
Cables are beautiful knitted architecture that can enhance your socks and provide interesting knitting, but they are also hungry beasts that eat up yarn and decrease circumference and elasticity. We will explore cable constructions and analyze the 'draw-in' power of popular cables. We'll also discuss strategies for sizing socks with cables and adding extra stretch.
