Once you've mastered the beginner knitting techniques from our spring workshop, make your next project amazing with cable knitting. Make your own cabled headband/earwarmer using your newly acquired cabling skills. These same cables are used in sweaters, socks, and scarves. We will cover how to make left-leaning & right-leaning cables, as well as how to figure the proper number of stitches to cast on when incorporating a cable pattern into a piece.
