July 24th (Fri, 9-4)LEARN 10 NEW SKILLS
In this class, students will learn 10 intermediate knitting skills that will improve the quality and finishing of their work. We will create a tiny mock-up of the Hatdana pattern as a tool to learn the skills listed below. This pattern yields a unique, versatile and practical accessory that can be worn as a hat, a bandana, a headwrap, and a cowl. It is a single-skein project designed for worsted and fingering weight yarns.
Students will receive a class curriculum. We will refer back to the curriculum throughout the class to ensure we meet the expectations set below. Students will learn:
● How to creatively edge knit fabric so that it lays flat and doesn’t roll ● Which increase to use, when, why, and how to make it ● Managing multiple stitch markers ● Working cables without a cable needle ● How to insert a lifeline ● Knitting in the round using Magic Loop ● How to work an Invisible Sewn Bind Off that mimics a Tubular Bind Off without grafting ● How to weave in a tail in ribbing for an invisible finish ● How to work a duplicate stitch ● How to create tassels and attach them to your knitting
TECHNIQUE REQUIREMENTS / CLASS LEVEL Students must know how to knit / purl, cast on and bind off. Adventurous beginner to intermediate.
