Instructor: Kate Atherley
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!
Skill level: advanced beginner – knitters need to be proficient with knit, purl
