Event description
Cables are used for pattern and texture in knitting. They are worked by crossing sets of stitches over and are great fun to do!

About this event

What are Knitted Cables?

Cables are a way of making your stitches travel over your knitting by crossing sets of stitches over to create patterns. They are fun and easy to work and will add the wow factor to any knitted project.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • What yarns work best for knitting cables
  • How to knit a cable pattern
  • How to use a cable needle
  • How to read standard Cable abbreviations

This class is suitable for beginner knitters who are comfortable with knit and purl stitches. The class is kept small to allow for focused tutorial and questions along the way.

So join me for this class and start having fun knitting cables - warning, they can be quite addictive once you start!

For this class you will need:

  • A pre-knitted swatch which we will use to knit some cables (see below for details)
  • A cable needle OR a double pointed needle one size smaller than your knitting needles

Ahead of the class, please cast on a small swatch of 23 sts as follows. I suggest using 4 or 5mm needles and a double knit yarn or chunky yarn with some wool content.

Row 1 (RS): P5, [k4, p5] twice

Row 2 (WS): K5, [p4, k5] twice

Repeat rows 1 and 2 three more times (8 rows knitted in total)

Here's what previous attendees had to say about this class:

"I have tried cable knitting in the past, but found it a bit tricky and have never been happy with the results. But having Jem show me how to knit cables, rather than just trying to follow pictures in a book, was that lightbulb moment and I've already cast on my next cable project."

"You are a very good speaker, enthusiastic and knowledgeable."
