Cable stitches are easier than you think!
There’s nothing like cabled garments and accessories to make you feel cosy. Nicki will show you how to use knit a variety of cable stitch patterns as well as help you decode written instructions and charts. You’ll start by learning to knit simple cables, then gradually develop your skills by making a variety of double cables, travelling stitch patterns, plaited and braided cables. You’ll be able to try out a variety of cable needles to see which type you like. Written instructions and charts will be provided for all stitch patterns as well as one-to-one support when you are unsure.
“Excellent course which taught me how to tackle cable knitting. Not nearly as difficult as I imagined, but that was entirely due to expert tuition from Nicki.”
The Being Knitterly Studio is in a beautiful Edwardian house in Loughborough, Leicestershire.
