Unravelling Knitting Errors

Since none of us are perfect knitters, an important part of knitting is learning to recognize errors and knowing how to fix them. In this class we will discuss the basic rules of "reading" your knitting to understand the mechanics of the fabric being created in order to prevent errors, and how to repair them if they do occur. Common knitting errors that will be covered include dropped stitches, excess or too few stitches, twisted stitches, and unwanted yarn-overs. Instructions for a practice swatch to bring to class will be provided upon registration. Note: there is a pre-assignment for this class. Please contact the shop for this after registration.

Introduction to Brioche

Brioche is a reversible stitch pattern that creates a wonderfully thick and lofty fabric that looks similar to a rib but with more stretch. It's a great choice for hats and scarves but can be used for garments as well. This class will introduce knitters to the basic brioche stitch, as well as covering a variety of information including symbols and charts, how to read Brioche instructions, Brioche cast-on and bind-off, 1-color and 2-color Brioche worked flat, selvedge stitch edges, and how to fix common mistakes. Pattern will be supplied as part of the class material.

Intermediate Knitting Sessions - Janet

This series of four classes is for those who have mastered the basics of beginning knitting. Students work on a project of choice, and by doing so will review the basics, enhance knitting skills, explore new projects, and improve pattern reading. Learn not only from the instructor, but also from your classmates.
