Class Details:
Knitters who love beautiful stitch patterns are delighted with the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible: 260 Exquisite Designs by Hitomi Shida, recently published in English. Join the translator to knit the fingerless mitts project from this book, and gain experience and insight into the complex charts and symbols. We’ll start the first mitt in class, practicing chart-reading and some of the more complex maneuvers, to be sure you can finish the project later at home. The pattern will be provided; you don’t need to purchase the book ahead of time. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; cables; advanced lace; chart reading; have knit a few accessories; provisional cast-on
Supplies for Class:
Approximately 200 yards of DK-weight wool or wool-blend yarn, preferably in a light color. Sets of double-pointed needles in US sizes 4 and 6 (3.5mm and 4.0mm); you may want to have a couple of additional sizes to get gauge, especially if you’re a tight or loose knitter. Cable needle. Small amounts of smooth waste yarn.
