Knitting 101: Cables


A Yarn Story

Save by booking Knitting 101 8 class or 4 class pass.


From a subtle twist on a simple beanie to an elaborate multi-stranded flow on a luxury shawl, cables look fantastic on any project. And the good news is creating cables is easier than you think!

In this one-hour class, our knitting expert will demonstrate how to knit a straightforward four-stitch cable, before moving on to a braided eight-stitch cable.

You will also learn more about how the rows between the cables can affect your final piece, and, of course, we will look at how to read cable charts and patterns.

During this class you will have the chance to knit different cables, ideal as a handy reference to take home.

You will need

  • DK weight yarn
  • 4mm knitting needles
  • Cable needle

Preparation for class

  • Cast on 36 stitches on 4mm needles 
  • Work four rows of garter stitch (knit every row)
