Class Details:

From easy to brain-bending! The Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible (JKSB) includes a wide range of stitches and techniques to create lovely sculptured knitting. We'll start with a relatively easy stitch pattern, then move on to others with more challenge: patterning on both right and wrong sides, with complex combinations. You’ll get lots of practice with Hitomi Shida’s style, and with the charts and symbols.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, increase/decrease, advanced lace, chart reading

Homework:

None

Supplies for Class:

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.
