Tips & Techniques
Explore clever ways to shape knitted fabric with Stephen West. In this class we will play with short rows, different methods of increases and decreases, binding offs, and cast ons to create unique shapes. Westknits designs are all about using simple techniques in different ways to achieve delightful architectural forms. You will get an inside look into Stephen’s design process and walk away with your own shape exploration that may inspire your next shawl or sweater project.
Supplies to Bring:
Please bring US 6 or 7 / 4 or 4.5mm circular needles and at least two colors of DK weight yarn to use during the workshop. Fingering weight yarn and US 5 / 3.75mm needles may also be used if you prefer knitting with a finger weight, but DK weight yarn will help grow the shapes quicker. Wear your Westknits! Don’t forget to bring your Westknits or other favorite knitted projects to show off and wear during the workshop.
