Description: Japanese knitting patterns often include an interesting and useful technique. This class will introduce you to an assortment of techniques from Japanese patterns and technique books. 

The techniques aren't exclusively Japanese, but you'll probably find them useful additions to your skill set. We'll work through: two tubular cast-ons; a vertical buttonhole; Japanese crocheted bobbles; and several variations on the three-needle bind-off.
Note: This class doesn't cover how to read Japanese patterns.

Skill Level: Intermediate, students must know basic knitting stitches, cast on/bind off, increases and decreases; beginner-level familiarity with basic crochet stitches (chain, sc and dc).

Homework:  Two swatches: using medium-weight yarn (worsted to DK weight suggested), cast on 20 stitches and work in stockinette for 10 to 14 rows.  Don't bind off, leave this swatch on a holder.  With yarn of the same weight in a different color, make another swatch the same way and leave it on another holder.

Tools Needed:  Small amounts of yarn for swatching and appropriately sized needles (suggest sport to worsted weight yarn, needles US 5 to US 8), one or two crochet hooks.

Materials Fee: None
