Creative Cabled Necklines

with Fiona Ellis
Creative Cabled Necklines
In this free mini-class, knitwear designer and author Fiona Ellis shows you how to bring the focus to your face by adding interesting, dramatic neckline features to cabled garments.

Learn focal point design principles and how to create areas of interest with lines and textures, then discover how to design or modify existing patterns to make your cables run into or around the neckline. Incorporate functional and stylish I-cords into your knitwear, and let Fiona show you how to extend your stitches past the garment's edge for a look that’s off the charts!
