Crochet Cables 101: Put a Little Twist In Your Stitches! with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
We all love the look of those luscious, sumptuous cables on sweaters, afghans,
hats, scarves and...well...we just love cables! What's that? You thought cables
were only for knitters? Not so! We will learn to wield our hooks to
create these wonders of twisted yarn in ways previously reserved for those with
pointy sticks (knitters).
We will swirl left- and right-crossing cables then work our way up to wide
cables with stabilizing stitches. Finally, you'll put your cables together to create
stunning fabrics .
You will leave class with the knowledge and skills necessary to add
these useful and stunning design elements to your bag of stitching tricks.
* Understand the concept of cabling and how it works in crochet fabric through
the use of post stitches
* Work sample block with different combinations of left twists and right twists to create beautiful cable patterns
