Design a cabled hat without the hard work part. Choose from a variety of different cable charts designed for the class, and learn how to complete your hat by following pre-written design templates for a beanie, slouchy hat or beret. All three styles can be knit seamlessly in the round or flat, then seamed. Experience reading charts is helpful, but if you’ve never done it before, you can learn it here.
The variety of charts will include a range of difficulty so intermediate or advanced knitters can forge ahead and take on a more challenging chart while beginners can keep it simple.
Homework: Test your yarn to make sure it makes an attractive, firm fabric at 5 sts / inch. Bring your blocked swatch to class.
Materials: Approximately 200 yds of worsted weight yarn – gauge 20 sts / inch. Needles to get gauge + 2 sizes smaller, your choice of straight, 2 circulars or double points. Two circulars are recommended so you can learn the method of seamless knitting using 2 circular needles at once. Cable needle or dp needle to use as a cable needle.
