Tips & Techniques, World Traditions
From easy to brain-bending! We’ll start with a stitch pattern from JKSB that gives you a lot of “bang for the buck”: it’s lovely and relatively easy to knit. As time permits, we’ll move on to other stitch patterns with more challenge: patterning on both right and wrong sides, with complex combinations. You’ll gain practice with Shida’s style, and with the conventions for the charts and symbols. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; cables; advanced lace; chart reading; have knit a whole garment
Supplies for Class:
Notebook, pen, and pencil for note-taking; two or three balls of smooth yarn for swatching (leftovers are fine) and needles suitable for the yarn (suggested: DK or worsted weight with needles 5 to 7); crochet hook; cable needle or DPN; yarn snips or scissors.
