Simple to execute, cables are almost always worked over stockinette stitch, thereby producing a "wrong" side. This is not particularly attractive on a scarf or shawl or afghan where the "wrong side" will be in full view of the public. In this class, learn how cables work; which stitches, yarns, and needles are ideal for these reversible cables; and how to chart them so you'll know what you'll be getting beforehand. By the end of this class, you will have a sampler of reversible cables plus enough ideas to keep you in stitches for a long, long time.
