Class Overview

Take your cables and texture to the next level as you join Melissa Leapman to learn how to knit a Celtic cable pattern. These cables feature a closed-loop design that lets you add cables without running them all the way down the garment. During class, Melissa will teach you how to work the increases and decreases needed to create these unique designs, and help you easily make sense of cable charts. Then, you’ll discover how to create a simple Celtic cable, a Saxon braid cable panel and a gorgeous Celtic knot, and Melissa will demonstrate how to apply these skills step by step to create a radiant, texture-rich pillow project.
