Have you been dreaming of a knitting getaway, but the resources elude you? Don't let your eyes get as misty as a Dublin fog; instead explore cable construction with Carol. She will walk you knit by knit through the process of constructing a flattering cardigan sweater with fun Celtic cabling. You'll love the convenience of watching each lesson from the comfort of your time zone and the ability to ask Carol questions along the way - as if you were knitting together in her native Ireland. Whether you're Irish or not, your eyes will be smiling when you sign up for this project-based class.
Meet Carol and get familiar with the Portulaca Cardigan as well as the Craftsy platform.
Learn how to get the right measurements for your cable sweater with Carol's expert instruction. She'll cover length, width and ease.
Learn to block and measure for gauge before exploring cable gauge and cable charts. Then Carol guides you through reading a cable chart and working cables A, B and D.
It's time to learn an alternate cable cast-on with Carol's help. You'll also explore one-by-one ribbing, the cable setup and your first wrong-side and right-side rows.
Making the sweater nip in at the waist gives it a feminine shape. Learn how to make modifications to address your specific waist measurements.
Get Carol's expert advice and instruction from ribbing to underarm as you construct your cardigan's sleeves.

Seams, blocking and buttons are all covered here as Carol gives you step-by-step instruction on adding those all-important finishing details.
Have you ever found a mistake in a cable on a previous row and thought you had to rip back yards in order to fix it? Carol shows you an easier way!
"I absolutely loved this class! Carol Feller explained the process very well through the videos, and gave excellent techniques that may be applied to other sweaters, such as double loop, grafting, blocking, etc. I have spent several months working on the sweater, but I have completed it and love it. Along the way I had questions which I asked of Carol, and she responded very quickly and gave excellent personal help. I highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning cables."
