Celtic Cables

Celtic Cables

Venue: Online with Craftsy!

Time: 24 hours a day…forever. I had so much fun preparing this class, it combines two of my favorite things; cardigans and cables! Craftsy is the perfect way to teach and learn a project like this, as you work your way through the cardigan you can go at your own pace and watch each section of the class as many times as you want to. Each class is divided up into different video lessons that work step by step through the knitting process. You’ll go from measuring yourself for a perfect fit on to learning cables and from there you will work your way through every step of knitting the cardigan. You can watch every section of the video as often as you want and you even have the option of adding video notes privately for yourself that you can return to in the future. In addition to all this you can also ask me and other knitters questions at any point in the videos making this a fully interactive class. I check into the class several times a week (frequently more often) to answer any questions you might have. This class is relatively advanced but if you are up for a challenge and love learning then you’ll get a lot out of the class. Get your discounted class here ($10 discount with this link).
