Have you always admired beautiful lace knits but are afraid to knit some of your own? In this class, Melissa will demystify lace. After the hands-on session, you’ll be able to begin your first lace project, a lovely cowl.
Spend a couple of hours with author/designer Melissa Leapman and explore how contemporary designers use fully-fashioned increases and decreases to create architecturally-interesting knitted fabrics. Learn how to diagonally bisect a sweater with a traveling cable (a reliable figure-flatterer!) while knitting a seamless patchwork of different textures.
In this hands-on workshop, we'll explore cable pattern that look great on both sides. By the end of class, you'll amaze yourself (and everyone else) with fabrics that have completely different cables on each side! (Note: Participants should be very comfortable knitting typical cables prior to the class.)
Mix and match different design elements to customize your own version of this popular silhouette. Choose from lace, mosaic, bubble stitches, and more in this fun, hands-on workshop.
Stranded fair isle is one of the most revered traditions in knitting. If, like many knitters, you shrink at the thought of carrying all those colors of yarn (oh, the tangling!) and the need for perfect floats (hello, puckering!), I see you. In two fun-filled hours, let me show you two super easy ways to create fair isle fabric using just one color per row. No magic spells required.
