Tips & Techniques
Class Details:
Delve beyond picking up a dropped stitch into more major fixes. Do you feel like you make a bigger mess when trying to fix lace or shaping? Learn how to “tink” or un-knit increases and decreases w/o loosing a stitch. Reverse a cable or add a missing cable many rows down. Fix common mistakes in lace such as a missing YO or a K2tog 3 rows down. Even learn how to shorten or lengthen your knitted piece. You have the power to fix without frogging! Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; cables; chart reading NOTE: There is some overlap with “Help I Took A Wrong Turn”
