Summer School – Cables – Burgeoning

I’m taking a bit of time off this month, but I wanted to make sure you had something to do while I’m napping (or, more likely, sweeping out the garage, getting drywall dust  out of my cabinets, or planning next year’s projects…but napping sounds better).

On Mondays, I’ll introduce a topic or skill and provide a bunch of links and resources to help you learn more. Later in the week, I’ll show off a few favorite patterns so you can do some homework.  The featured patterns will be on sale for one day each, so come back each weekday to see if there’s something that catches your eye!

Ok, so yesterday we went with tiny cables. Today I want to show you something a little bit more substantial, and Burgeoning is just the way to do that.

This is a perfect example of how a tiny change can have a dramatic result.  Last time you were crossing one stitch over one stitch…this is just crossing two stitches over one or two stitches.  It’s a teeny tiny incremental change, but it gives a totally different look.

But the nice thing is that, once you have the general idea of cables down (‘work stitches out of order,’ that’s all there is to it), you can do a huge range of things.  All you have to do is find the one that makes you go ‘yup, yup I want to try that!’

Burgeoning is 25% off just for today with the code SUMMER SCHOOL (technically, it’s 12:01 am to 11:59 pm eastern time on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 if you want to get very particular).  Come back tomorrow for another cable favorite!
