Tuesdays April 5th – April 26th

  • Tuesday, April 5th
    • Alasdair Post-Quinn – Intro to Double-knitting
      • Double-knitting is a unique method of making a fabric with no “wrong” side and a built-in reversible colorwork pattern. Significantly different from the standard intarsia and Fair Isle colorwork that are so well known, double-knitting is a labor-intensive but wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire. In this workshop, you’ll learn my 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, get comfortable with the techniques involved, then move into colorwork. At the end of the workshop, you should have a motif swatch and be confident that you can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.What to know: To take this class, you must be able to cast on and knit and purl comfortably in single-layer knitting. If you are familiar with the long-tail CO and some other form of two-color work, you will have a leg up but these are not strictly necessary.What to do: Before coming to class, please watch the cast-on video and try the cast-on with some spare yarn. We will go over the CO in class but the more people who have already tried it, the faster we can get into the “meat” of the workshop.
      • What to bring: 2 solid colors (one light, one darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in the size you would normally use for your chosen yarn.

    • Leslie Anne Robinson – Brioche in the round
      • In this class, we will be going over the basic stitches of One-Color Brioche, then
        move on to exciting Two-Color Brioche, all knit in the round. One-Color Brioche is a great way to teach
        your hands the muscle memory of the technique without the complications of two different yarns, and
        is a fantastic introduction to Two-Color Brioche. Two-color brioche is very fun, and can be easier to
        see the anatomy of brioche stitches, so we will be focusing on this for the remainder of the class. Yarn
        choices and color will be briefly discussed. You will learn my favorite cast-on and bind-off techniques
        to use with brioche knitting, the basic brioche setup, and work on something you could take home to
        keep practicing!Prerequisites: Knowledge of knitting and purling, knitting in the round
      • Materials:
        • 2 balls of yarn in high contrasting colors, whatever weight you are most comfortable with.
          I recommend DK or Worsted weight, around 200 yards / 183 m each.
        • 16” / 40.5 cm long US 5 – 7 / 3.75 – 4.5 mm circular needles or DPN’s, whatever you prefer using
          for working in the round
  • Tuesday, April 19th 
    • Romi Hill – Devilish Details: Short Rows
      • A beautiful and successful project always comes down to the details! In this class, students will learn Japanese, Sunday, German, and wrap and turn short rows. We’ll be talking about where to use each short row technique to best advantage: working in pattern and also in straight garter and stockinette stitch. We’ll be swatching all of the different techniques and talking about how to substitute for one another.
      • Materials
        • worsted weight yarn and needles of choice for swatching; 2 locking stitch markers; 2 short pieces waste yarn
  • Tuesday, April 26th
    • Shaina Bilow – Better Sweaters
      • The best way to learn is through experience, right? It doesn’t have to be your own personal experience, though. With more than 20 years’ and thousands of sweaters’ worth of knitting wisdom, Shaina will share her top tips for ensuring your finished garments will be treasured additions to your wardrobe. Whether you are thinking about casting on for your first sweater, or feeling a bit dissatisfied by previous knits, this class will offer new approaches to pattern reading and sweater planning. Discussions include the importance of gauge, preparing for successful finishing while you knit, and everything in between, with student questions encouraged.
