Criss… Cross… Cable!

1-2 class hours.

At its most basic, a cable is a group of stitches whose parts swap position every few rows. The maneuvering required to swap stitches is simple to learn. Their complex appearance comes about because of the many ways stitches can be grouped, arranged, and intertwined with other groups. Learn the basics of crossing cables, terminology, and how to work from written instructions and from a chart.
