Stitches: Texture*

Have you ever admired a sweater with Aran or Gansey patterning? How about a breathtaking lace shawl?  These beautiful designs are created with textural techniques that look complicated but are easy to learn. In this four-workshop class, you will learn chart-making, as well as many knit and purl stitch patterns, cables, bobbles, lace, and twisted-stitch designs. 

Please note that there has been a change of date and time for this class.

Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Instructor: Beth Altimari
Date: Wednesdays - 10/15, 11/19, 12/10; 2014
Time: 1:00pm-3:00pm
Materials Required: 

  • Learn-To-Knit Afghan by Barbara Walker (required text, 15% discount)  
  • Several skeins of smooth, light-colored, worsted weight yarn. If you have any suitable yarn in your stash, by all means use it. You will be making 12 large swatches, to be safe, plan on about 90 yards for each swatch.
  • Straight or circular needles in a size that gives a gauge you like for your chosen yarn.  
  • Magnetic board (8 X 10) with magnetic ruler (stands are also available) or highlighter tape  
  • Cable needle  
  • A pencil  
  • Your knitting tool kit
  • The squares knit in this class could be a great start for a blanket, so you may want to think about that when choosing your yarn; however, this class will not go over joining squares.

When possible, please buy your materials from WEBS.
