Crisscrossing the Rainbow: Color Cables
Saturday, October 17, 2020
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM (EDT)
One can spend a knitting lifetime exploring the various lovely twists and turns that make up regular cable combinations. Now add color to that mix! One color cable patterns against a different background color, different color cable strands meandering all over and among each other, striped cables, and bi-color rope cables are some of the combinations covered. You will learn how to convert a cable chart into a color cable schematic using graph paper and/or a charting program. Grab your colored pencils for some creative color fun and then knit up your creation.
