What KnitFreedom Students Say About This Cabled Legwarmers Knitting Class:
I am very glad I got this Cable Knitting e-book. Reading patterns is hard for me but Liat goes step by step and makes it really easy to understand. Anyone that wants to learn cabling this is the e-book to get and the price is great. thank you Liat
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Liat for her Cables 101 course. I was looking for a pattern for legwarmers to wear on my motorcycle in cold weather. I wanted them to button, and be fairly warm.
The Bulky Cabled Legwarmers pattern was perfect, and the promise of videos to help me through my first knit cables was important. AS IT TURNED OUT... I really needed the troubleshooting videos. I got to the 54th row of the pattern on the left legwarmer, feeling pleased with myself because they looked so good.
As I read over the instructions for the last few rows, I saw a mention of sewing 4 buttons on. FOUR!!!! But I only had three button holes. Sure enough, on row 43, I had missed the buttonhole.
I took a deep breath, watched the video on fixing a missed buttonhole, and started ripping my stitches down to the missed button hole. Four or five tries later, it was fixed, a buttonhole and 10 more rows of fixed knitting.
WOW! Thanks so much for this. I would never have had the courage to attempt to fix this problem without ripping out all 11 rows without your videos.
Because you learn so many new skills in this book, you should be comfortable with knitting and purling before you begin. Need a refresher? Just download my free video knitting dictionary, and you'll have all the resources you need to get started.
