Textured sweaters are often called Aran, Fisherman, or Celtic designs. Textured patterns can be made with a range of simple to complex sequences of knit-purl stitches. This workshop is about learning the various pattern stitches to create a textured pattern sweater. We will start with learning the basic moves beyond knit and purl to create the various texture patterns and how to understand and use graphed design patterns to create textured knitting.
