Beginning Design for Knitters

Learn how to use gauge, stitch pattern repeats, and desired measurements to design your own knitted cowl. We will play with design concepts such as charting a written stitch pattern and converting a flat stitch pattern to working in the round. Participants will choose an inspiring stitch pattern and take it from paper to a wearable accessory.    

This class is for the adventurous knitter!  Please be comfortable with knitting in the round and reading knitting patterns. 

Prerequisite: Knitting II, or equivalent
Instructor: Katie Carr
Date: Thursdays, 2/6, 2/13, 2/20, 2/27; 2014
Time: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Materials Required: 

  • A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker. (Note: this book is 15% off for students of this class. When purchasing by phone, let customer service know that it's for this class. If you are purchasing online, leave a note in the special instructions that you are also signing up for this class, and the discount will be applied by customer service.)
  • Circular needles in a variety of sizes and lengths. Shorter lengths are needed for cowls with shorter circumferences, longer lengths for longer circumferences. 
  • Graph paper - any grid size is fine, but 10x10 is suggested.
  • Yarn: exact yardage depends on size of cowl, gauge and stitch pattern, but 100g of sock weight to 250g of bulky weight should be sufficient for most cowls   
  • Any preferred, non-charted stitch dictionaries  
  • Stitch markers
  • Pencil

Choose a few stitch patterns from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns in Chapters 2-9, 11, or 12. If you have already purchased yarn for your cowl, consider how that yarn will work up in the stitch patterns you've selected. If you haven't bought your yarn, you may get the instructor's input at the first class.
