Lace & Cable Surgery
Date & Time
Friday, March 24, 2017, 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
In this workshop, we will discuss techniques to avoid lace and cable mishaps and then learn how to rip a section of lace back and knit it up row by row without having to rip the entire project out. After the lace, we will move on to mis-crossed or mis-placed cables, exploring how to use duplicate stitch to cover small problems and how to ladder down and fix other issues. Students will be given charted knitting homework to be prepared prior to the class: a lace swatch and a cable swatch with mistakes, to be operated upon during class! Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; cables; beginner lace; chart reading; have knit a few accessories; patience.
Two swatches, one with lace mistakes and one with cable mistakes.
Supplies for Class:
Swatch homework with working needles, double pointed knitting needles at least 2 sizes smaller than used to knit swatch, crochet hook in similar size to smaller double pointed needles, small foam core sheet (or something else to which the swatch can be pinned), at least 30 T pins, point protectors, optional chart holder, patience.
