Four Crocheted Cable Blocks
- Jan 27, 2018 12:00 pm

Crochet cables are a great way to add texture to your projects. Join us for this class to learn 4 different cabled patterns. These project blocks will build on the post stitches used in the recent crochet scarf class. But do not worry, if you missed that class you can learn how to make these cables using the Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) stitch. Since cables are created by crocheting stitches out of order, it can be easy to lose your place. Let us help you learn this technique to set you up for success. Put the 4 together and make a baby blanket carrier or add more blocks to make a larger throw.

Knit Along: Cabled Cardigan
- Feb 06, 2018 06:00 pm

This beautiful cabled cardigan's silhouette evokes the tailored lines of an equestrian riding jacket, but the look is softened by the luscious cable work. Structure is integral to this cardigan; it's worked in pieces and seamed to prevent stretching. The collar and buttonband are picked up and knitted. Crosshatch leather buttons are the perfect finish for this rich garment.
