About this Class

Take your knitting to the next level with cables.We will knit a Tsov hat, designed by Caitlin Hunter of Oregon, designer and creator of Boyland Knitworks. This hat provides an introduction to cabling with a few different variations of simple cable. Before we start knitting, we'll talk about the structure of cables, the different tools used to cable, and learn to read cabled instructions that are written out as well as charted.

As we get to the top of the hat, double pointed needles will be used for knitting small circles in the round. An introduction to a technique called "the magic circle" also will be provided.


  • Skill Level: You should be confident casting on and off, and knitting. The appropriate cast on for the pattern will be taught.
  • A materials fee of $35 is included in the cost of the class.
  • Ages 14 and up are welcome.

Class Policies


Betsy Hagestedt had been working with fiber since she was in elementary school, having learned to sew and knit from her mom.

As an anthropologist, she uses her fiber practice as a means of connecting with people from other cultures, embracing the universal nature of the fiber arts. Knitting gradually became her specialization due its portability as she began to travel around the world.

You can see some of her fiber experiments on her Instagram feed at behestknits.
