Class Details:

There are so many wonderful knitting tricks that make our lives better. Over the years of knitting and teaching I’ve accumulated quite a few fantastic tricks. I love it when I’m teaching a class and a student declares “I love that tip!” So I’ve decided to dig into my knitting bag of tricks and put them all in one class. From how to do a better ssk to making matching size yos, from how to avoid the gap at the end of a bind-off to how to tighten your first stitch, to how to make better neck divides, and more. Get ready to find your new favorite knitting tricks! Technique Requirements: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, know simple increases and decreases. Having knit at least one sweater or followed an accessory pattern helpful but not required.

Homework:

Cast on 24 stitches and work 2 inches in plain stockinette (NO GARTER EDGE), enough to get a sense of your knitting style. End with a WS row (ready to work a RS row). Do not bind off; we will be working this swatch.

Supplies for Class:

Yarn: Worsted or chunky weight yarn, LIGHT COLOR. Needles: appropriate for yarn.
