Skill level: Advanced beginner to intermediate knitters
Workshop Description: By simply slipping a stitch, you can create surprising textures in your knitting. You can also create complex-looking color work while working with only one color at a time. Explore the simplest of slip stitches, in which the working yarn is held to either the front or the back of the knitted fabric. Our exploration will include changing the “background” stitch (stockinet, garter, seed, rib), the effects of combining two or more colors into the slip stitch patterns, the use of variegated yarns in these stitches and how to create your own unique simple slip-stitch patterns.
Students should bring: Three colors of yarn all of a similar thickness, knitting needles appropriate for the yarn
Material Fee: : $12 samples for examination, additional yarns for knitting, knitting patterns, notebook with handouts, sundry supplies.
Class Limit: 12
