CLASS: Cables & Lace

$50.00

Description:
This class is a wonderful opportunity to learn easy cables and simple lace, and to knit with the very lovely, very forgiving, cushy and soft Gala (or any other worsted weight, Aran or Chunky). Malabrigo, Lettlopi, Estelle.

Wrapped about your shoulders for style at a fall or winter wedding or your face, undrr your coat, in our harsh winter, this piece is, in a word, Luxurious. Truth about cables is … they really show beautifully in lighter shades. You may wish to keep that in mind when selecting your colourway.

Prerequisites: Be comfortable with casting on stitches, knitting and purling.
