Instructor: Kate Sarah Mitchell
So you’ve made a gazillion scarves but still can’t increase, decrease or read a pattern? Come learn the next steps in knitting: multiple cast-ons and bind-offs; increasing left, right, and centered; lace stitches; and basic cables. Learn the abbreviations for reading and writing patterns and charts. We’ll also make time for special requests like knitting fair isle, knitting backwards, or using circular and double pointed needles. You’ll go home with up to a dozen swatches or more and the knowledge to broaden your knitting repertoire to garments or freeform art. Previous experience with at least a basic knit and purl is necessary to get the most from the class.
