Creating Cable Patterning & Celtic Knit Cables at FIBER FRIDAY with Fiona Ellis via ZOOM

Even the most complex looking cable pattern can be broken down into basic building blocks. Fiona will show you how these basic crosses can be linked together to create more elaborate looking, but workable, cables. Then by taking a closer look at Celtic Knot patterns we will examine some techniques that may   not be used in regular rope cables. While you knit a sample to try them out, Fiona will explain & demo the techniques, show you how to read the charts, including looking at the symbols used, and for the more advanced cable knitter discuss how you might modify patterns to make them your own. With an understanding of what is taking place when cabling you will be better able to follow a pattern or fix any mistakes as they arise (which never happens right?)

  Materials: part ball of light-coloured medium weight yarn, yarn appropriate needles, cable needle, pencil & paper.

  Homework: none.

This program begins at 6 Eastern, 5 Central, 4 Mountain, 3 Pacific and will be recorded

Your zoom link and any handouts will be sent to you the evening before the presentation. 
A link to the recorded version of this class will be emailed within 24 hours of the class which students can watch for 7 days. 


Skill Level: Intermediate
Skill Details: This is an intermediate to advanced class
Instructor: Fiona Ellis
Instructor Bio: Fiona Ellis's career is certainly one about escapism. After pursuing a sensible career in laboratory work for textile production and colour cosmetic formulation, Fiona escaped from career-captivity in the early 1990's to pursue fashion design at De Montfort University. She graduated with a degree specializing in Knitwear Design. Fiona then founded her independent design business, selling designs to major fashion houses in New York, Paris and London. Her contacts in New York helped her to add design for the independent knitter to her repertoire. This led to her published patterns in major print and on-line magazines, and two successful books published by Random House. Along with having classes available on the Craftsy platform, she is now also a qualified yoga instructor. Through her workshops Fiona's aim is to help people escape from the mundane and bring creative design sensibilities to their knitting.
