Stop Turning: Knitting and Purling Backward (NEW!)
Sunday, January 19, 2020
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Tips & Techniques
My favorite knitting trick is to stop turning! If you hate purling, or are unhappy with your uneven tension, or simply aren’t crazy about flipping that 400-stitch basket weave afghan around every time it’s time to work a WS row, learn the joy of never turning! We will learn how to put the knit stitch and the purl stitch in reverse as well as learn basic decreases, short rows, and picking up stitches backward. Knitting and purling backward is great for entrelac, bobbles, short rows, and chart work.
Technique Requirements: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off and simple increases and decreases and be able to work them without supervision.
