Class Details:

Broaden your knitting horizons and change your life with StevenBe. This workshop is designed to be an amazing opportunity to have fun while learning Steven’s best tips and tricks. It will set you free from patterns as written and help you feel comfortable making your own modifications and design decisions. Remember: a pattern is only a guideline!
Start with a base pattern from StevenBe and learn different methods of creating angles and edges, modifying the shape with modular knitting, adding new colors, and combining fibers in unique ways to customize the pattern and truly make it yours. Learn to super-size smaller knits and play with a variety of yarn weights to create your own custom colors and textures.

Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease

Homework:

None

Supplies to Bring:

• Pen, paper, and scissors
• Base pattern of your choice from the StevenBe repertoire (recommended patterns are Silk N Scribbles, Eyelet Ponchini, Scharf, Shawlvest)
• Minimum 3 yarns to work with, we love to experiment with finer weights like lace and fingering and fiber contents like mohair and silk to be combined into a heavier weight. Yarns should be chosen and wound prior to class so we can begin immediately. More yarns can be added during class. Choose a color palette when bringing your stash to make it cohesive.
• A variety of needle sizes will be needed so bring a good selection. We highly recommend an interchangeable needle set for this class
• A notebook and pen or pencil for taking copious notes
• Steven’s goodie bag of most preferred notions, including stitch markers, tapestry needle, tape measure, and scissors--Steven recommends the Knit Kit.
• A work-in-progress or finished project for show and tell (the desire to be admired is not required—but it is recommended!)
