#530 Amy Tyler – Knitting: Extended and Manipulated Slip Stitches Half day Sunday pm $50
Skill level: Intermediate knitting skills
Workshop Description: Slipping stitches over more than one stitch or over more than one row can create dramatic vertical and horizontal textural effects. And by combining slip stitches with cables and other manipulations, you can add diagonal texture to your knitting. These stitches create knitted fabrics with great thickness, varying amounts of elasticity and drape that work well for jackets and afghans. In this workshop we will knit several swatches that highlight characteristics of these more complex slip stitch patterns. We will play with color combinations, strategies for knitting with variegated and novelty yarns, and strategies for modifying knit stitch patterns by adding or subtracting slipped stitches.
Students should bring: 3-4 balls of yarn of different colors but same yarn gauge, knitting needles appropriate for the yarn, a cable needle
Material Fee: $12 Samples for examination, additional yarns for knitting, knitting patterns, notebook with handouts, sundry supplies.
