Cables are easy to make, and can be used for incredible texture and design. Learn how to work cables and traveling stitches both with and without a cable needle, as well as how to read cable stitch patterns and charts. We will also start one of Kira's cabled cowl designs, either the Interlaced Cowl or the Svelte Cowl. If you’re ready to move beyond simple knit/purl patterns, this is the class for you!
