Workshop Info

Date: Saturday, October 19, 2024
Time:10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Instructor:Emily Wood

This workshop combines slipped stitches with cables in a fun mashup of color and texture. Slipped-stitch cabling is a colorwork technique that is very similar to mosaic knitting; only one color of yarn is used at a time in each round, making it an easy way to produce a sophisticated-looking product.

During the workshop, knitters will practice slipped stitch cables using the Kinetic Energy Hat pattern, a bottom up hat that also features rows of ribbing and garter stitch. They'll need 2 or 3 colors of yarn with a good contrast and either double-pointed needles or a circular needle for working a small circumference in the round.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED:  Advanced Beginner

PREREQUISITE:  Read a pattern, knits and purls, work stitches in the round, slip stitches, cables, decreases

HOMEWORK:  With MC and smaller needle size, cast on 120 (140, 160) sts for a size 18 (21, 24)" hat circumference and join to work in the round. Place a marker to mark the beginning of the round and slip this marker each round.

Round 1: *K2, p2; repeat from * to end of round.
Repeat Round 1 eleven more times, or until ribbing measures 1.25” / 3 cm from cast-on edge.
