Slip It Float It Tuck It workshop with Bristol Ivy: SA Apr 1, 10 am – 1 pm

April 1, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Event Category:
Knitting is based off of two fundamental stitches, right? We knit, and we purl. But what happens if we. . . Slip? In this class, we’ll discuss how slipping (and slipping’s compatriots, floating and tucking) stitches instead of working them can lead to a pattern of their own and add texture, dimension, visual interest, and structure to our knitted fabric. We will start with a small swatch to understand the concepts, but by the end of class you’ll have the skills you need to create your very own slipped stitch masterpiece!
Skills needed:
knitting, purling, some cabling a plus
Materials: please bring 50 yards of smooth, light-colored worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles (typically US 7 [4.5 mm]-US 8 [5 mm]. Stitch markers may also be useful, but not mandatory.
