Chart Reading

$40
November 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Instructor: Kate Atherley classes - images.png Charts are a very useful way to communicate complex pattern stitches, but they can be intimidating to many. 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. Bring: any patterns you need help with.

Fearless Finishing

$60
November 17 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Instructor: Kate Atherley

  • Many knitters avoid a lot of garment patterns because of the finishing work required, and even the most experienced knitters often have holes in their finishing knowledge – or simply lack confidence about them. The reason is simple: information in books and patterns is often very weak in this area, leaving knitters to try to figure it out themselves. This hands-on workshop teaches practical, useful and sensible finishing skills. Along the way we'll dispel a lot of common myths, break down some common sources of confusion, and show you short-cuts that make the finishing task easier and improve the finished project. We’ll cover the three key seaming methods – reviewing how to do them and where to use them, including how to set in a sleeve. We'll practice two key skills that cause problems for knitters of all experience levels: grafting (Kitchener stitch) and picking up stitches - how and where to pick them up, how to handle large numbers of picked up stitches, and what to do if you can't match the number the pattern calls for.  We'll discuss blocking, weaving in ends and how the proper cast-ons and cast-offs can make your finishing work easier -- and improve the finished result.
  • Bring anything you have that needs finishing. If not then bring several swatches for practice.
  • Class Length: 3 Hrs
