Class Details:
Going beyond the basics of Dimensional Tuck Knitting, this class is an in-depth exploration of the technique which discusses several ways to use and expand this technique. After a very quick overview of the basics, we will discuss the benefits of increasing or decreasing the scale of the stitch and we will also explore standard vs alternative methods. Next, you will learn how to choose an appropriate stitch pattern to incorporate color changes within the stitch pattern. Finally, you will learn the Garter Equivalent Equation to make it easy to substitute a Dimensional Tuck stitch pattern into an existing garment pattern or to design a garment of your own. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; chart reading; easy colorwork
