HELP! I Took a Wrong Turn: Miraculous Cable Fixes with Patty Lyons
Cables are beautiful and intricate, but oh my—do mistakes jump out. No need to live with them anymore. Crossed the wrong way, or on the wrong row, or did you even forget a cable entirely? No problem! If fear of fixing mistakes has kept you from trying out larger cable projects, no need to fear. We will master fixes while your stitches are still on the needle as well as some pretty amazing fixes you can make to your cables after your stitches have been bound off. Go back and fix those past knitting mistakes—help is here!

Supplies
Yarn: Smooth, light-colored worsted weight or chunky yarn (wool or wool blend best). Extra ball of same weight yarn (this can be in the same color, or in a contrasting color to more easily see the fix.
Small amount of thin cotton yarn (dental floss can be used in a pinch).
Needles and hook appropriate to yarn.
Notions: large locking stitch marker, scissors, tapestry needle.
