In this fun-to-knit scarf, you'll create a scarf with attractive patterns on both sides. The cable is worked on one side of the scarf, but miraculously, you end up with another motif on the reverse side! If you have ever been intimidated by cables, this workshop is for you. We break down the knitting cable process into step-by-step instructions complete with detailed photographs to show you how they should look.
For our project, we'll use the Remy Scarf pattern. Tackle your fear of reading charts by learning cable symbols and following the row-by-row progress of a cable. Written instructions are also provided. If you do make a mistake such as a mis-crossed cable, you'll learn how to fix it without having to rip out entire rows of your work. Finally, you can easily modify the look of this scarf by using other types of yarn or by increasing the size to make a shawl.
The instructions and photographs make this workshop perfect for beginning and experienced knitters alike. If you have any questions along the way, I'm here to help. Post questions, comments, and photos of your work to share with me and your fellow students.
Once you have tried cables, you'll see they are not nearly as difficult as you thought. You will be able to take these skills and apply them to other cable patterns to make more garments and accessories.
