Class Details:

Distitch is an innovative knitting principle. It gives structure, warmth, and strength, while making your knitting strikingly beautiful.

In the theoretical part, you’ll learn the main features of the Distitch and its structure. In the practical part you will learn how to work basic knit DS and purl DS, how to convert any conventional stitches to Distitches (published only in my book Distitch), how to work basic Distitch crochet chain.

The necessary handouts will be provided 

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, beginner crochet


For sample cast on 12 sts, work 6 rows in garter stitch; set-up Row 1 (RS): knit; Row 2 (WS): purl. Repeat rows 1&2 three times (8 rows of stocking stitch in total).

Supplies for Class:

Any yarn (DK or worsted weight, preferably in light colors), two or three balls; three sets of needles: 1) to match the yarn; 2) slightly thicker; 3) thick needles. For example: if your basic needles are size 3.0 mm, then two others will be 3.75 mm and 4.5 mm. Two crochet hooks: 1) to match the yarn; 2) the thick hook. For example: if your basic hook is size 3.0 mm, then the second will be 4.5 mm.
