Mastering Cable Design

Description

Learn to create, modify and make cable-knit patterns with prolific and personable knitwear designer Fiona Ellis.

Fiona puts a new twist on deciphering cable abbreviations while teaching you basic cable crosses, rest rows and how to creatively combine these knit design elements. She'll also offer tips on where to find cable design inspiration and how to enhance your garments with I-cord embellishments. As you move on, you'll learn about diamond and doughnut shapes, adding and subtracting individual cables, playing with negative space and creating different cable angles. Plus, you'll also learn to mix and match elements from existing cable designs to make them your own.
