Venue: The Lyceum – 201 S. Washington St.
Poor, plain garter stitch. So often confined to the edge of the party, so seldom seen in anything but the same old blocks or stripes. But not today! Today, garter stitch breaks out into fully-fledged stranded color patterns, courtesy of an intriguing but little-known technique called garter jacquard. We’ll work charted garter jacquard patterns and also explore other fun techniques that play well with this fabric: I-cord edgings, and “afterthought” openings created by cutting into the knitting.
Skills needed: Fluency in the basic techniques knitting, including working from color charts.
Homework: With lighter-colored yarn selected for class and needles to give a firm (not tight) gauge, CO 18 sts. Knit 40 rows, slipping first st of every row as if to purl with yarn in front. Do not bind off.
