Knitting 102 – The Purl Stitch and Circular Needles (1/2-day)

fibercrafts

In this workshop we will give a brief review of knitting practices, and students will learn to master the second basic knitting stitch (the purl stitch) using circular needles. You will learn how to work a stockinette pattern (the most common pattern for sweaters and other knitted garments), how to read and follow a knitting pattern, how to understand gauge, and will learn a new cast on method.

In the class you begin a patterned scarf using knit and purl stitches in a combination of garter stitch and stockinette stitch patterns. We will also review and practice the technique for correcting simple mistakes. Before taking this class you should know how to work the knit stitch. Circular needles and yarn for a scarf will be provided and are included in the materials fee.

This is a half-day class from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.
