Read Charts Like a Pro (12 students Maximum)

This class provides knitters of all levels the tools to read, understand and comfortably work from charts for any type of knitting pattern: colorwork, cables and lace. We’ll talk about how to read them, and also share tips for working with them, keeping track of your progress, and making them as easy to read as possible.

Homework/Materials required: Bring any patterns you need help with.

Kitchener Confidence (12 students Maximum)
Skill level: advanced beginner - knitters need to be proficient with knit, purl

Description: Kitchener Stitch (Grafting) is feared by many knitters. It’s a tricky thing, and if you get it wrong, it can look pretty terrible. This class focuses on taking the fear out of the process. We’ll build confidence and skills through practice, sharing tips for remembering the steps, and for fixing it if you mess up. I’ll talk about how to handle a variety of fabrics: stockinette stitch, garter stitch and ribbing. I’ll also share tricks for avoiding it entirely!

Homework/Materials required: 4 mini swatches worked in worsted/medium weight yarn on 4-5mm needles: 2 in stockinette stitch, each 20 stitches, 10 rows worked; 2 in garter stitch, each 20 stitches, 10 rows worked. Leave all stitches live – do not cast off. Bring these swatches, plus a blunt-ended darning needle and a scrap of contrasting colour yarn.

Cost $45
