March Workshop by Kristina Tucker
Reading your Knitting
SUNDAY, March 12  1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SEFAA (Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance)
3420 W. Hospital Avenue, Chamblee, GA 30041
 
Have you ever been working on a project and lost count of your rows? Make a mistake and not sure how to begin to fix it? Do you get confused between the different stitches and the right side/public side and wrong side of your work?
 
Knitting and following patterns can seem overwhelming, but many times our knitting can tell us everything we need to know. This class will cover all the basics: from counting rows and stitches, to getting gauge, to why different stitch patterns matter, all the way to how to count different stitch patterns. We will also cover more complex issues like why it is necessary to use different increases and decreases.

HOMEWORK:
None, though students may bring a project stuck in “time out” if they need help with reading their knitting.
 
SKILL LEVEL/SKILLS NEEDED:
This class is for the beginner/beginning intermediate knitter. Kristina will talk about counting rows, how to read different stitch patterns, what different increases and decreases look like, etc. The class will also talk about simple lace work and cables and how to read them.
 
MATERIALS AND MATERIALS FEE:
Students are requested to bring some scrap worsted weight yarn and a pair of US# 6, 7, or 8 needles. They may also bring a project from a “time out” to gain some knowledge about what happened and how to fix it.
