Quick Reversible Cables mini class
Skill level is advanced beginner.
Prerequisites: Should be able to work 1×1 ribbing. Should already have experience with basic cables.
Maximum 20 students.
Students receive a handout in booklet form.
No materials fee.
Using your favorite cast-on for 1x1 ribbing, cast on 56 stitches and work a few rows in 1x1 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.

No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.
