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.

  • With this webinar you'll learn:
  • How to determine yarn amounts for cabled projects
  • How to bind off and finish cabled sections neatly
  • How to work a cable without a cable needle
  • How to count rows worked since the last cable cross
  • How to work right and left twists with decreases
