Amy Snell: Knit Fixes, October 2
12 - 2 pm PT
Uh-oh, there’s something wrong with your knitting! Never fear, almost everything in knitting can be fixed once you learn a few simple techniques. In this class, you’ll learn how to “read” your knitting to identify problems, what causes issues like accidental holes and unintentionally expanding knitting, and how to fix common problems like dropped or twisted stitches. You’ll learn how to drop down and ladder up, how to tink, how to frog, and how to know which one to do when. You’ll learn how and when to use lifelines, and a few other tips and tricks along the way.
This virtual class is suitable for those who can cast on, bind off, knit and purl.
Materials: You will need worsted weight yarn and needles to match (US #7-9), either dpn or circular needles at least two sizes smaller, a few locking stitch markers or coil-less safety pins, dental floss or embroidery thread, a tapestry needle, and a crochet hook in size H, I, or J (5.0 , 5.5, or 6.0 mm).
Homework: Before class begins, using your worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles, cast on 20 stitches and knit 20 rows in stockinette stich (knit a row, turn, purl a row, repeat).
