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 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.
• 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 “twist” and right
