Knitters who love beautiful stitch patterns are delighted with "Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible: 260 Exquisite Designs by Hitomi Shida," recently published in English. This class will give you an exclusive preview of one of the designs. Join the translator to knit the scarf project from this book, and gain experience and insight into the complex charts and symbols. We’ll start the body of the scarf with a provisional cast-on, practicing chart-reading and some of the more complex maneuvers, to be sure you can work on the project later at home. We will also complete the “frill” at one end (optional). The pattern will be provided; you don’t need to purchase the book ahead of time.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; advanced lace; chart reading; have knit a few accessories; advanced finishing techniques; comfort with provisional cast-on
Supplies for Class:
Approximately 350 yards of sport to DK-weight wool or wool-blend yarn, preferably in a light color.
