Knitting, Tips & Techniques
Class Details:

In this class you will learn the NEW technique of applying cross-stitch to mesh knitting. It is based on my designs, the Mia hat and Rose Cardigan from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2019. “If knitting is the canvas, embroidery is the paint. Combining the two fiber arts yields spectacular results.” The concept is to knit a garment or an accessory and use it as a canvas for cross-stitch embroidery on top. Note: homework is required.

You can find the designs with this technique on my Ravelry page; please go to the pattern pages for additional info: Mia: & Rose Cardigan:
