Colorful Cables Three Ways with Lorilee Beltman
You don't have to choose between texture and color in your knitting. You can have both. We'll knit 3 swatches, worked flat. In one swatch, we'll work 2-handed-stranded knitting with cables. In another, we'll try our hand at 2-stitch-wide cables offset by the main color. In a third, our colorful cables will travel over a reverse stockinette background. I'll have a fourth option in our handout, if there's time.
Speaking of having it both ways: we'll learn how to make these cables traditionally with a cable needle and be a little radical and learn to make them without!
Note: Students should be able to accomplish simple 2/2 right cross and left cross cables before attending this class.
