Cabled Afghan Knit-Along

Description
Intermediate | 3 hours
Taught by Edie Eckman
Welcome to our Knit-Along! Over the course of 12 weeks, knitting pro Edie Eckman takes you on a whirlwind adventure exploring the wide world of cables. Each week, you will learn new stitch patterns with a variety of twists and turns, and at the very end, you’ll put all of the blocks together to make a gloriously textured, cozy afghan. Edie presents this afghan in one neutral shade, but you can use whatever colors float your boat for your own unique design.
