Cabled knitting is beautiful and creates a lovely, textured fabric. In this class we will explore the combination of cable knitting with the principles of colorwork. We will work two samples, each focused on its own colorwork principles. First, we will use a chart that combines stranding and cabling, then we will move on to tackle a swatch combining intarsia and cables. By the end of this class you should have a great understanding of how to combine these techniques, and be able to see opportunities to modify existing patterns to add color to cabling. Kyle recommends his Josephine Cowl as an excellent project utilizing this technique. He will gift this pattern to all Workshop One attendees.
