Stitch patterns create our favorite textures in our knits. This workshop will look at developing a library of personalized stitch patterns. We will play with expanding and contracting, manipulating and warping common stitch patterns. Learn how to adapt a favorite pattern to best suit a garment, scarf, or shawl. Learn how to plan, map out, or improvise a stitch pattern to travel in a dynamic way across your knits. Note: this is a theory class that includes some playing with yarn. No specific project will be created, but many many evil plans will emerge!
Needles and yarn: light-colored yarn. DK or worsted yarns will make it easier to see stitch patterns. Stitch markers, cable needle, and any other knitting tools you commonly use. Pencil, paper, and eraser. Optional: your favorite stitch patterns. Ones with 2- through 8-stitch repeats work best.
