The Fix is In – handling mistakes and repairing your knitting (Sun)
Tickets at $110.00
This class is best for intermediate knitters – advanced beginners will do fine if they can read their knitting (identify knit and purl on the needle) execute a simple chart, and understand a simple cable.
This class explores options and solutions for when bad things happen to good knitters. We’ll explore dropped stitches, missed yarn overs, mis-crossed cables, selvedge stitches (and when not to have one) and how to fix (mostly) damage to knits like pulls, holes and runs.
Materials required to bring:
- a small quantity of smooth worsted weight yarn, similar to the one you worked the swatch with- but in a contrasting colour
- a darning needle
- a crochet hook appropriate for the yarn
- two DPNs a size or two smaller than the ones you’re using for the swatch
- a pair of scissors or snips
Homework: You’ll need a small swatch of knitting, about 20 stitches, worked in Stockinette (knit right side rows, purl wrong side rows) to a square. Please use smooth, light coloured worsted weight yarn, and needles you feel are appropriate. Do not cast off – bring the work still on the needles.
