Cables, those lovely sinewy patterns you see on Celtic knit sweaters and accessories.  They can be as simple as two stitches and four rows and as complicated as, well, as complicated as an Irish Fisherman Knit sweater.  But cables are all just stitches worked out of order.  The trick is really just understanding the language of the pattern and keeping track of where you are.  As a bonus in this class, Ginni will show you how to correct a missed or miss-crossed cable rows down without unknitting the whole thing - that's worth the cost of the class just by itself!

In this class, Ginni, knitter of dozens of cabled things, will show you all the tricks as you work the gorgeous Dryad scarf design by Jared Flood.  Our version is worked in woolen spun Mt. Vernon from Cestari Yarns in Staunton, Virginia.  Mt. Vernon is a light and lofty kettle-dyed heavy worsted yarn with a twist that's perfect for showing off cables.  You'll love how it knits, and you'll love how it feels - especially after a little bath. 

Bring US size 9 (5.5 mm) needles to class.
