Knit a Necklace
Intermediate | 40 min 2 sec
Make a textural knitted necklace with acclaimed yarn manipulator, Lynne Barr. In this class, Lynne introduces knitters to her CAPS technique, which is an innovative way to Continuously Apply Pieces — or, in other words, knit a sculptural piece with one continuous strand of yarn. The knitted flanges on this necklace are connected to an I-cord tube, which you can customize to make as long or short as you like. Once you get the hang of the technique, it's a quick knit with stunning results.

I think the 4th module didn't have the voice over correction for the cable cast on (vs the spoken narration of knit cast on) so glad to have an example of how to do CAPS for her other designs.
