In this video, Jen Arnall-Culliford teaches a quick way to know where you are in your cable repeat.
At a recent knit night, someone asked me how to do this, and I said something along the lines of “ooh, that’s a tough one.” Next time, I’ll have an actually useful trick to share.
Something New to Learn About Cables
This video is a companion to Jen and Jim Arnall-Culliford’s new book, Something New to Learn About Cables, which we carry in the MDK Shop, along with the yarn specified for the patterns in the book, Coop Knits Socks Yeah! DK.
Curious about the book? Here’s our rundown. To sum up, we love the Arnall-Culliford approach to learning knitting techniques by using a great project as a laboratory.
We’ve both knit our fair share of cables, but we learned tricks and techniques from this book that made light bulbs go off in our heads. As you will see in the videos that accompany the book, Jen’s calm, concise and confident presence is exactly what we need in a teacher.
