|3 types of reversible honeycomb cable fabric|
Skill level is advanced beginner.
Prerequisites: Should be able to work 1×1 and 2×2 ribbing. Should already have experience with basic cables.
What you will learn:
simple flat reversible cables
overview of cable nomenclature
which types of cables can be worked reversibly
Maximum 20 students.
½ day workshop
Students receive a handout in booklet form and the pattern for the Legerdemain Reversible Cabled Scarf.
Using your favorite cast-on for 1×1 ribbing, cast on 56 stitches and work a few rows in 1×1 ribbing to establish pattern. Leave yarn attached and stitches live on the needles. Note: If you are a tight knitter, please go up a couple needle sizes, as this fabric will pull in and you’ll need some slack to be able to cable comfortably.

needles to work that yarn in ribbing
a pin for marking the right side of your work
No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. I have a projector if the facilities can accommodate it. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.
