ABOUT THE CHALLENGE
I've always been fascinated by cables and the gorgeous texture that they produce, especially in Aran knitting. I love the idea of crossing your stitches, making them travel all over your piece of knit to create a beautiful path.
But I also know that cables can be intimidating! They are so diverse, with sometimes pretty complex chart that cable knitting can feel overwhelming at first. That's why I created this Promenade Challenge. I wanted to help you learn all the basics of cable knitting and to bring you on a journey to discover different kinds of cable so you can feel more confident and inspired to bring more cables to your knits!
Cable Promenade Cowl is made of 5 different sections worked flat with different cable variations. It is a single journey with simple cables transforming themselves into more complex ones, and in the end you will come full circle with the end attached to the beginning, having learned many things during your travel.
Whether you are:
- A beginner wanting to learn the basics of cable knitting
- A more advanced knitter ready to play with more complex cables and to try different variations
This challenge is for you!
