Learn to knit cables while working on a cozy cowl! If you've mastered knitting basics and are looking to tackle more complex projects, this workshop is for you!

In this three hour workshop, we'll cast on a cozy cowl and learn cableing techniques as we go. You will learn how to:

  • Cast on using Alternate Cable Cast On
  • 2 and 9 stitch cables  
  • Reading a cable chart (optional) 
  • Binding off in pattern  

Due to the slow nature of knitting, you may not finish the cowl during class hours. However, we will cover all of the trickiest parts of the pattern, and you'll be well-prepared to finish on your own! 


SKILL REQUIREMENTS: This is an intermediate level knitting workshop. In order to register, you must have confidence in the following knitting skills, and have practiced them in the recent past. Due to the group nature of this workshop, we will not be able to provide instruction on the below. 

  • Knitting in the round
  • Ribbing (knitting and purling)
  • Binding off 

If you're a newbie or need a refreshed on any of the above, join us for Knitting 101 and Knitting 102 to get some practice in and build your skills!
