Design, Inspiration
Class Details:
One of my favorite classes to teach, this is my "make charts and use them!" primer for knitters looking to start putting their inspiration into knitted forms. Starting with a few examples from my own design history, we’ll talk about using the world around us as a source of inspiration. We’ll look at what works and what doesn’t in knitted designs, play with graph paper, and swatch our designs and think about their best application in future projects. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; easy colorwork
Homework:
None
Supplies for Class:
Bring yarn in a few colors you like together and needles to match, plus visual materials to serve as inspiration: a coffee table book, vacation photos, postcards, kid’s drawings, even fashion magazines.
