Sunday, November 14
1 - 3pm Central Time
Skills needed: comfortable with knitting cables
Techniques covered: adding colors to your cables and how to modify existing patterns
One can spend a knitting lifetime exploring the various lovely twists and turns that make up regular cable combinations. Now add color to that mix! One color cable patterns against a different background color, different color cable strands meandering all over and among each other, striped cables, and bi-color rope cables are some of the combinations covered. You will be amazed at how the same cable pattern can produce very different visual experiences by changing which stitch columns receive color. And discover the fun of experimenting with color placement as you learn how to convert a cable chart into a color cable chart using graph paper and/or a charting program.
