July 25th (Sat, 9-4)using Knitting, Crochet and Macrame
In this class, we will make a wooly wall hanging that blurs the line between the fiber arts. If you enjoy lace knitting but are intimidated by tiny needles and fine lace yarn, in this class we will learn intermediate lace knitting skills using bulky yarn and larger needles. We will attach the knitting to a macrame hoop using crochet techniques and attach the fringe with macrame knots. The result will be a modern macrame-style wall hanging that you can proudly display in your home and make as gifts.
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:
● The German Twisted Cast-On ● Which increase and decrease to use and why ● How to strategically place increases and decreases to shape fabric ● How to mirror lace for symmetry ● Contrast and compare several lace patterns to determine how each is constructed ● How to attach the knitting to the hoop using a basic crochet stitch ● How to make basic macrame knots
If time allows, students will also learn: ● How to wet splice natural yarns to join a new ball ● How to invisibly join a new ball of yarn when using synthetic fibers
TECHNIQUE REQUIREMENTS / CLASS LEVEL Students must know how to knit / purl, cast on, and bind off. Intermediate knitting. Absolute beginners welcome for macrame and crochet.
