What you get:
In this 3 hour class you will design your own cabled hat without the hard work! Choose from a variety of different cable charts designed for the class, and learn how to complete your beanie, slouchy hat or beret by following prewritten design templates. All three styles can be knit seamlessly in the round or flat, then seamed. Experience in reading charts is helpful, but if you've never done it before, you can learn it here. The variety of charts will include a range of difficulty so intermediate or advanced knitters can forge ahead and take on a more challenging chart while beginners can keep it simple.
Test your yarn to make sure it makes an attractive, firm fabric at 20 sts/4 inches. Bring your blocked swatch to class.
What to bring:
- Approximately 100g/180m of 10 ply/worsted weight yarn
- Needles to get gauge (usually 5mm for 10 ply yarn) and another set 2 sizes smaller. These can be straight, 2 circulars 60cm or longer or a set of double pointed needles. Two circulars are recommended so you can learn the method of seamless knitting using 2 circular needles at once.
- A cable needle
