CreativeBug, Edie Eckman and Red Heart's 12-week cable afghan knitalong courseEdie Eckman, Red Heart Yarn and CreativeBug have teamed up for a 12-week free knitalong course to make a cabled afghan, and the first lesson launched today.

It begins with a discussion of the materials needed — it calls for Red Heart Soft yarn — and how to make the bias garter stitch squares that are interspersed through the project.

Over the next 12 weeks the project will cover a variety of cables, from basic braids to honeycombs, diamonds and lattice.

It looks like a great overview of different cabling styles and would be a great learning project for anyone interested in diving in to cable knitting without starting on a huge project like a sweater.

If you check it out I’d love to hear what you think!
