Cables are particularly hot in ready-to-wear fall/winter styles this year, as well as in handknitting. Cable knitting requires some special techniques and has unique effects on knitted projects and yarn requirements. Once you understand these concepts, you can tackle the season’s coolest looks.
To demonstrate trends in cable knitting, editor of Interweave Knits Lisa Shroyer will share some exclusive sneak peeks from the Winter 2013 issue, and use these patterns to demonstrate cable concepts such as: what kinds of yarn are best for cables? How do cables affect yarn requirements? How they do affect gauge? How does blocking affect cables? How should you handle bind-offs in cable sections? And finally, for faster cable knitting, she’ll walk you through working cables without a cable needle.
Lisa Shroyer is editor of Interweave Knits and knit.wear magazine, and author of three books from Interweave, the latest of which is Free-Spirit Shawls. She lives in North Carolina and loves cable knitting.
