Introduction to 3D knitwear workshop (Moko-Moko cowl) with Olga Buraya-Kefelian

October 23, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Instructor: Olga
Event Category:

This class combines demonstration about 3-D knitwear in hand knitting with practical instruction to create the Moko Moko Cowl.

Olga will present her 3-D design philosophy to reveal a slightly different angle of knitwear and put your existing knitting skills into a novel path, all while you learn how to create one of her amazing designs. You will learn not just how to make this cowl but also how to adapt it, customize it, and shape it to your liking. For the duration of this project you will hone your skills of modular style knitting, and will also learn and practice knitting backwards using either Continental or English (throwing) style.

Skills learned:

  • Basic 3-D theory concept
  • Provisional Crochet Chain cast on
