January 21 Concurrent Knitting Classes
8:30 to 11:50 a.m.
(Mid-session hospitality included)
1. Design 101: Chart Original Knitted Motifs / Julia Farwell-Clay
Chart paper and a little visual inspiration is all it takes to design something truly original. Julia Farwell-Clay will talk a little about her design inspirations from the printed textiles of The Folly Cove Designers, and then lead you through the steps she takes to develop charted motifs for knit design. Bring a coffee table or art book you love, a few yarns (or more) of medium weight (DK or Worsted) in colors you like together, and needles to match. Adventurous Beginner to Intermediate.
2. Crochet for Knitters / Alison Green
Crochet can be an easy and effective way to add beautiful edgings to knitted garments, and it also stands alone as an excellent craft to learn for accessories, home decor, and even sweaters! In this class you will gain a strong grasp of the basic crochet stitches, and we will explore what crochet does best and how it can complement your knitting. Bring one or more knitted swatches, 4" square or larger, knit in worsted weight or DK yarn, plus the yarn you used for your swatch(es) and a couple other spare balls of yarn, and crochet hooks in appropriate sizes for your chosen yarns.
3. Build a Raglan by Yourself / Ellen Mason
Many knitters have a sweater quantity of lovely yarn that does not match up to a satisfying sweater pattern. Why not create your own pattern? Let's dissect raglan sleeve construction - shaping every other row, shaping every fourth row, a smooth underarm curve, how to get the number of stitches and your stitch pattern to align with your sweater vision. Bring a calculator (ack, a calculator? no worries!), some yarn, and a variety of needle sizes appropriate for your yarn.
January 22 Concurrent Knitting Classes
8:30 to 11:50 a.m.
(Mid-session hospitality included)
1. Introduction to Fair Isle / Julia Farwell-Clay
A traditional knitting technique named after a tiny island in the north of Scotland, Fair Isle is used to create patterns with multiple colors. We'll cast on together with teacher provided yarn and practice different ways of working with 2 yarns at once, and reading color work from a chart. Adventurous Beginner.
2. Magic Loop Fingerless Mitts / Alison Green
Do you find double-pointed needles fiddly and annoying for knitting small circumferences in the round, such as mittens or socks? Drop those dons, grab a long circular, and try out the Magic Loop method, while whipping up some cute, easy fingerless mitts. Bring a skein of DK, worsted or bulky weight yarn (the pattern is written for multiple weights), and a circular needle, 32" or 36" long, with a smooth join (Addi Turbos, for example), in a size appropriate for chosen yarn.
3. A Knitter's Recipe Box: Tips, Tricks & Unkept Secrets / Ellen Mason
Let's dig into a recipe box full of choice tips and tricks from books, the internet, friends, family, and the knitter sitting next to you. Learn a handy cast-on, a simple trick to work faster on circular needles, how to keep track of rows, a secure method for setting stitches aside, hiding places for your stash, and other that-is-so-simple discoveries. Please bring a variety of needle styles and some scrap yarn for swatching, as well as your favorite trick. This is going to be fun!
