Class Details:
Dimensional Tuck Knitting is an innovative technique that transforms a simple, flat, stockinette fabric into one that will bend, fold, and double back on itself to create exciting new depth and texture, without the need of any extra tools, counting, or rearranging of stitches. Using three of the basic stitches, Simple Twist, Basic Braid and Smoke, in the standard method, you will learn how to read the charts, and how to see the stitch patterns within the charts. Next, we will explore how to measure for gauge, how to block your knitting and how to work Dimensional Tucks in the round. Finally, you will learn how to incorporate a Dimensional Tuck pattern stitch into your favorite sweater pattern using the garter equivalent equation. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease
Supplies for Class:
Light colored, smooth, worsted-weight yarn (Cascade 220 or similar). Needles appropriate for worsted-weight yarn to create a cohesive, pliable fabric. Scissors, note paper and pen, calculator.
