You're confident with basic stitches and construction techniques? In this workshop I’ll try to guide you through some techniques to expand your skills and take your knitting to the next level - I’ll take you on a (knitting) trip from the top down - a method that enables you to try your sweater on from time to time to check the overall fit while you’re knitting.
We’ll discuss different ways of knitting a sweater from the top down and learn some useful tricks.
Skills needed: knitting in the round, basic knowledge about sweater construction.
Materials to bring: notepad and pen, knitting yarn and matching circular and double pointed needles (dk or worsted weight will work best), safety pins or locking stitch markers, darning needle, crochet hook (same size as knitting needles) and some waste yarn.
Any “homework”?: We need 3 swatches:
Cast on 20 sts, work 6 rows in Garter stitch, then 4 additional rows in Stockinette stitch. Stitches should be left 'live' on the needle to be able to work from this point.
