In this workshop, not only will we discuss techniques to avoid mishaps, participants will learn how to rip a simple section of lace and cables back and knit it up row by row without having to rip the entire project out. We will also go over using duplicate stitch to fix a mis-crossed cable. Students will be given charted knitting homework to be prepared prior to the class: 1 lace swatch with mistakes, and a cable swatch with mistakes, to be operated upon during class!
Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; cables; beginner lace; chart reading; have knit a few accessories; understanding of the engineering of knitted material and ability to read knitting
