January 21 Concurrent Knitting Classes
8:30 to 11:50 a.m.
(Mid-session hospitality included)
1. FIXING MISTAKES / Alison Green
Stop ripping out your knitting! In this class, students will explore different strategies to fix various errors such as missed yarn overs, extra stitches, wrongly-turned cables, and more. Most of these issues can be resolved if they are discovered a few rows later, or can be disguised in the finishing process. Knitters should bring medium-weight yarn and appropriate needles for your yarn, and any projects with mistakes that they hope to fix.
2. BUILD A RAGLAN / Ellen Mason
Encore offering, by popular demand! 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.
3. CHARTED PATTERNS FOR KNITS & PURLS / Dylan Uscher
The knit and purl stitches are the building blocks of all knitting techniques. They might be basic, but when we combine them we can create visually stunning and intricate patterns. In this class, well be reviewing these stitches and learning how to read charts in knitting patterns using the Gurnsey Wrap pattern from Brooklyn Tweed. Students should purchase and download the Gurnsey Wrap pattern (Worsted Version), and bring the recommended needles, yarn, and stitch markers. Also, please bring a pen and paper or a row counter to help you keep track of your progress.

1. CABLE TECHNIQUES / Alison Green ** SOLD OUT **
This workshop will give you the opportunity to try a variety of cable patterns, progressing from simple to fancy. You will gain confidence reading cable charts and "reading" your knitting. Different styles of cable needles will be discussed, and cabling without a cable needle will also be covered at the end of the workshop. Knitters should bring: medium-weight yarn and appropriate needles for your yarn; one or more cable needles.
2. KNITTING WIRED / Adrienne Sloane
Expand your knitting horizons and get wired! Wire is a wonderful, flexible medium for making delicate and interesting jewelry. This class will cover the basics of working with 28 gauge wire starting with knitting needles and moving onto other methods with heavier gauges as time permits, to create simple but beautiful pieces that can also be embellished with beads. Resources and materials for successful wire knitting will also be covered. Supplies: Please bring size 2-5 metal knitting needles (double pointed best) and crochet hooks of various smaller sizes; beads and jewelry pliers, if available, and any 26-28 gauge wire you may have. Wire will be available for purchase from instructor at cost if needed. This can be fine work so bring magnifiers, if needed.
3. THE AMAZING MOBIUS STRIP / Ellen Mason
Join the ends of a long narrow strip of fabric together with a half a twist, and the resulting band becomes a one-sided surface. This concept was an important mathematical discovery dubbed the Mobius Strip, and it played a mighty role in running the textile mills of New England. Lets explore this peculiar (and mind-blowing!) aspect of geometry through our knitting in various ways, applying the concept to bracelets, cuffs, bands, and infinity scarves.
