As knitters, we are quite used to our stitches flowing in one direction ... but what happens when you want them to move in different ways?
Laura takes you on a deep dive into modular construction as we look at how to manipulate the geometry of our knitting so that our stitches grow in unexpected ways. We’ll look at a variety of grafting techniques, from the obvious to more obscure, and practice picking up stitches in a multitude of ways. Laura has been playing with modular design over the last fifteen years in her clubs and mystery knit-alongs and has never led a workshop on this fascinating subject. Prepare to have a whole new perspective on your stitches and where they can go!
Variety of yarns to play with (sport, DK, worsted—don't go shopping, just grab leftovers from stash. Laura will bring some as well). Interchangeable needle set (or a few circular needles in different sizes). Approx. 4mm crochet hook. Pencil/pen and notebook.
