Yarn Craft Academy LIVE: Knitting 102 - Cables for Beginners
Let's talk about cables. I hear from a lot of knitters who are terrified of them. The idea that you would move stitches around on your needle makes them turn white as an albino siberian tiger.
But cables are actually one of the simplest ways of adding a little pop of awesomeness to your boring plain fabric.
We at the Yarn Craft Academy are gonna tame that tiger, and help you become a cable knitting master.
In this online video class, knitting instructor Johnny Vasquez explains it all – from the basic cable technique, to how to read basic cable charts and pattern. Whether you want to learn to make simple headbands or an owl cable motif, this class will put you on the right track!
