Class Details:

Helix knitting is a magical way to knit stripes (and more) with no seam and no jog by creating completely interlocking spirals. You may have heard of this technique, but did you know how many options there are when doing it? In this workshop, we’ll work hands-on to explore the two different setups, as well as the stationary-join method and the slip-stitch method. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each so you can pick the right setup and method for your project. We’ll also play with different uses of helix knitting, including multi-row stripes and working garter in the round. Finally, we’ll look at different cast-on options as well as explore shaping in helix.
