Projects & Patterns, Tips & Techniques
Stacked stitches are an innovative approach to striped colorwork, best known as the technique behind the Fox Paws pattern. Stacks can add shaping, create 3-D texture, replace short rows, and, when combined with stripes, they create intricate motifs without unsightly strands on the wrong side of your projects. You’ll never need to manage more than one color at a time or worry about bobbins, because stacked stitches bend rows of garter stitch into new shapes and patterns using only increases and decreases.
This introductory class will enable knitters of all levels to try out the technique in a swatch and become confident working patterns that incorporate stacked stitches. We will focus on mastering the increase and decrease stitches and learn several strategies for avoiding problems and fixing mistakes.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease
