Free Expression Cables
May 23 & 24 (Thurs & Fri)
A fun, creative approach to learning how to make up new cables. Instead of starting with a chart, learn to ‘pattern’ while knitting. Students will play with making their own free form cable pattern. Norah is the ‘Queen of Wands’ and learning to knit with her, will open up all of the incredible possibilities of cables.
Experience reading your knitting and knowing knit from purl when you see it will be beneficial. An intermediate skill level is best, but the class is open to all.
