Summer School – Cables – Tacit

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!

Ready to show off?  Just a little?  If you can get the hang of two by two cables (and you can, I really really know you can), you can make this.  They’re called Tacit and they’re unspeakably nifty.

Just take a minute and think how amazing you’re going to feel when that comes tripping off your needles!

This is a slightly different approach to cables.  Normally cables sort of look like a big entwined knot where you can follow one strand along the whole path.  But these stack the cable crosses up a little differently to make something that almost looks like ribbing.  It’s the exact same moves (remember, cables are just working stitches out of order).  You just position the cables a little differently.  And you look EXTRA impressive!

Tacit is 25% off just for today with the code SUMMER SCHOOL (technically, it’s 12:01 am to 11:59 pm eastern time on Thursday, July 4, 2019 if you want to get very particular).  Come back tomorrow for another cable favorite!
