There is something magical about the swirl and dance of cables. There are so many different kinds of cables, so the possibilities are are endless! If you’ve always wanted to learn how to knit cables, but have hesitated to do so, the Cables 101 course is for you!

In this workshop, Tabetha Hedrick teaches you:

  • The tools you’ll need to achieve cable success
  • How to read cable abbreviations and cable charts
  • How to knit 3, 4, and 5 stitch cables
  • How to knit without a cable needle
  • How to fix cable mistakes

Included in this workshop is a handout containing two cable sample patterns for you to work along with Tabetha’s lessons and some suggestions of cable patterns found on our SweetGeorgia Yarns shop! Check out the Class Resources and Handouts page before you get started!


All of the chat and progress will be shared over at the forum, with social media posts shared using the tags: #sosknitting and #schoolofsweetgeorgia
