Description: This workshop is all about how knitted fabric behaves.  The fabric you make can have wildly different characteristics and shapes depending on how you combine knit and purl stitches, where you slip stitches, whether you cross stitches, how you incorporate increases and decreases, and much more.  We will knit swatches of stitch patterns that pull in, pull up, bias, curl and pleat.  In the process, we will explore the importance of both stitch gauge and row gauge to understanding how these stitches work their magic.  We’ll also cover issues of yarn selection, elasticity, drape, and techniques of blocking.

Skill Level: Intermediate knitting (comfortable casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch, increases and decreases, standard bind off).

Homework: None

Tools Needed: 100-200 yards of yarn (sport or worsted weight in solid, light color);  knitting needles appropriate for the yarn; darning needle.

Materials Fee: $15
