Everything They Assume You Know (2 hours)
Deciphering Jargon in Knitting Patterns
Tuesday, September 26, 11am-1pm • $30
Teacher: Sara Keim
Admission: Knitting has jargon, and jargon is annoying. But you can conquer knitting’s lingua franca with Sara’s help! This class will cover all the basics--everything designers assume you know when you tackle a pattern but that you might have missed or forgotten along the way: how to properly slip stitches, how to work SSKs and CDDs, how to cast on loosely, and so on. You’ll be fluent in no time.
Homework: Before class, participants should write down at least two questions for Sara about any aspect of knitting and/or knitting jargon.
• Questions (see homework, above)
• 1-3 patterns about which you have questions, along with your projects (if possible)
• Paper and pencil
