Saturday: Crochet Cables Over the Edge – Edgeless and Reversible
Most crocheted cables are worked on a background of solid stitches on just one side of the fabric. But what if you want just the cable, right up to the edge, no extra stitches on either side? What if you want a cable fabric that looks the same on both sides so it is truly reversible? Break away from those flat edges to create cables with scalloped edges and even make them reversible. In this class you will learn how to use front and back post stitches to create edgeless cables of various sizes as well as tricks for smoother cables along the edges that look good on both sides.
Sunday: Endless Knot Crochet Cables
Inspired by the Celtic Knotwork of ancient times, the Eternal Knot has no beginning or end. During this class you will learn to use front and back post stitches to create the woven look of knotwork cable patterns worked on a background of half double crochets for knots that can be inserted into a variety of crocheted garments and accessories.
