Fixing Knitting Mistakes (2 hours)
Thursday, March 8, 6-8pm • $30
Teacher: Sunday Holm
Do your projects stop when you make a mistake you can’t fix? With Sunday’s help, you’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. Sunday will also cover what to do when you don’t have enough yarn left to finish a row and take a look at lifelines (integral to lace work). Take this class, and you’ll have the tools you need to get going again!
Pre-requisites: Participants should be familiar with the following: the long-tail cast-on, knitting, and purling.
Homework: Participants 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.
