OOPS! OH NO! WHAT NOW? & OTHER KNITTING DISASTERS
May 24 (Sun.) 1:30-3:30 p.m. 1 day
Become a more confident knitter by learning how to avoid trouble before you start, how to correct common mistakes without ripping out your work, and how to successfully rip and recover. Using small swatches, you will make mistakes and then learn to correct them. A must class for those wanting to feel more confident; some homework required before the start of class. By Cheryl Murray.
Supplies to bring, all of which are available at the Yarn Barn:
· Smooth, light-colored worsted or bulky-weight yarn
· Needles sized appropriate to yarn
· Crochet hook roughly same size as needles or slightly smaller
· Tape measure
HOMEWORK TO BRING TO CLASS:
1. Cast on 20 stitches and knit 4” in Stockinette Stitch (i.e. Row 1: Knit, Row 2: Purl, repeat Rows 1&2). Bind of all stitches.
2. Cast on 20 stitches and knit 2” in Stockinette Stitch as above, ending ready to work a right-side (knit) row. Next row: Knit 5, Purl 1, Knit 10, Purl 1, Knit 3.
