Swing Knitting and Other Fancy Pants Stitches
Tickets at $110.00
Add colour and coloured texture to your heel flaps the easy way. Use the Swing Knitting technique for simple one row stripes and slip stitches; from two and three colour moss stitch to vertical stripes and dots. Never work with more than one strand of yarn at a time, but avoid sewing in those hundreds of ends.
In this hands on class, you will learn the basic technique, then play with your yarn and try the more complicated looking but easy textures and stripes. In addition you will learn to spark up your knitting with some unusual and fancy, yet easy stitches. Perfect for dressing up a pair of Plain Jane socks.
We will learn picot cast on’s, “button hole” stitch edgings, ribbons, weaving and much more. You will be working small samples of each of the stitches.
Skills required: knowledge of knit and purl sts.
Materials required to bring:
- usual knitting kit
