In this class, Kat will show you how to do cables without a cable needle. If you’re a seasoned cable pro but want to learn how to streamline the process, this is a great way to up your cable knitting game. But even if you’re a complete cable newbie, this practical class is still for you! Kat loves cables and has knit hundreds (if not thousands) of them, but she’s never owned a cable needle because she learned how to do it without a needle first.

Suitable for adventurous beginners and up.

Prerequisites: Participants should be confident with the knit stitch and purl stitch and know how to cast on and bind off. You should also be familiar with how to read a simple pattern.

Materials required (provided by student):

  • 50-100g of smooth, non-splitty 8-12ply wool or wool blend yarn in a plain, light colour 
  • Needles suitable for your yarn, straight or circular

You're entitled to a 10% discount on purchases in store on the day.

Your teacher: Katrina Walser

Kat doesn’t remember who taught her the knit stitch, but she does remember that her mum noticed her knitting and taught her how to cast on, bind off and purl. After getting fixated on cross stitch in high school, she picked up her knitting needles again during uni and hasn’t put them down since. She published her first design in 2016 and now has over 20 patterns listed on Ravelry. She’s taught countless friends and colleagues to knit and has taught classes at the Etsy headquarters in New York, and is very excited whenever she gets to teach people new skills in the knitting world!
