Description: Every knitter loves to discover new and interesting stitch patterns. This class will give you a chance to try a few unusual stitches that I’ve found in Japanese garment patterns. We’ll review the standard symbols used in these designs, then swatch four or five stitches that you may not have seen before. You don’t need to know how to read a Japanese pattern, but you do need to be comfortable knitting from charts. Some of the charts are difficult to interpret, and some of the stitches may be complicated to execute, so bring an adventuresome attitude — they're all fun! You may find them useful in your own designs. The class aims to remove the fear from tackling complex charts, so you can approach just about any Japanese chart with confidence.

Skill Level: Advanced.  Intermediate level skills, plus yarn over patterns, cables, ribbing, comfortable with pattern interpretation.  Must be very comfortable knitting from charted stitch patterns.

Homework: None

Tools Needed: Small amounts of smooth yarn for swatching (suggest DK to worsted weight yarn) and appropriate needles (suggested US 5 to US 8), scissors, usual notions, paper to take notes.

Materials Fee: None
