NEED FOR SPEED: CONTINENTAL STYLE KNIT STITCH PLUS 3 WAYS TO PURL

May 12, 2018 10:30am - 12:30pm

Try your (left) hand at continental style knitting and discover why it’s thought by many knitters to be the fastest way to knit. In addition to the knit stitch, we’ll practice purling in non-traditional, Norwegian, and Scottish styles. Transitioning between knitting styles guarantees changing tension, so students will create swatches or imperfect but functional dishcloths.

Class Skill Level: Advanced beginner - intermediate

Materials:1 ball Worsted or DK weight cotton or wool yarn and needles to match (perhaps 100 yards used). 2 stitch markers.
