Fixing Knitting Mistakes (2 hours)
Thursday, February 16 • 6-8pm • $30
Teacher: Sunday Holm
Do your projects stop when you make a mistake you can’t fix? We’ll look at the anatomy of the knit and purl stitches and learn how to unknit and what to do when you’ve knitted instead of purled (or vice versa), dropped or twisted your stitches, turned your cable the wrong way, or gotten off your stitch count. We’ll also cover what to do when you don’t have enough yarn to finish a row and learn a bit about lifelines (integral to lace work). Take this class, and you’ll have the tools to get going again when you’re stuck!
Pre-requisites: This class is recommended for beginning to advanced knitters. Knitters must know how to cast on, knit and purl.
Materials: US 7 or 8 needles, one skein Shepherd's Wool Worsted in a light or medium color (purchased from Spun), a size E, F, or G crochet hook, a tapestry needle, two yards of waste yarn (smooth sport or DK, in a medium or dark color), a stitch holder, pen or pencil, and notebook
Homework: Students should cast on 30 stitches, then work in stockinette stitch (*knit one row, purl one row, repeat from *) until their piece measures 6-8 inches long. Do not bind off.
Maximum number of students: 7
