If you hate seams but love stitch dictionaries, join us to learn how to take patterns written row by row and convert them to round by round. If the pattern is already charted, it can be even easier. Learn what to do with those extra edge stitches, the importance of stitch repeats and the secrets to selecting patterns that are easy to convert. Students will practice converting several stitch patterns to work circularly and convert a circular pattern to be worked flat. Basic charting will be covered as an optional tool. Students will work a swatch in class in the pattern of their choice to confirm their understanding of the concepts.
