Crochet Cables: Put a Little Twist In Your Stitches! with Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby
We all love the look of those luscious, sumptuous cables in sweaters, afghans, hats, scarves and...well...we just love cables! What's that? You thought cables were only for knitters? Not so! In this class 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 work swirling-left and right-crossing cables then work our way up to wide cables with stabilizing stitches. Finally, we'll put your cables together to create stunning fabrics of twisted, twirling stitches.
In the end, you will leave class with the knowledge and skills necessary to add these useful and stunning design elements to your bag of stitching tricks.
