Math for Knitters

This class is currently full. Please contact Customer Service at 800-367-9327 to be placed on the waiting list.

Math can be fun, especially for knitters who want to be in control of their work. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the nitty-gritty of knitting gauge, and we’ll play with percentages and pattern stitch numbers to make sizing adjustments for those times you simply can’t get gauge on the perfect yarn for the perfect project. We’ll also talk about yarn-substitution arithmetic and experiment with other knitting number-magic, like the Fibonacci sequence and MacGyver-style measuring. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have some new math tools for your knitting skills kit, and you’ll be ready to play with, not by, the numbers on your next project!
