One of the most interesting and best parts about knitting is the huge variety of patterns available. But where does the inspiration for those patterns come from? In this class, we’ll talk about different forms of inspiration and different ways of thinking about knitting, and then explore methods and theory to bring those ideas to reality. This is a great class if you’re interested in designing, or just want to experiment with all the possibilities knitting has to offer!
Skills focus: Spatial thinking about knitting, designing, working from different directions, knitting geometry, working from inspiration to finished object.
Skills needed: Must be comfortable with increasing and decreasing, stitch patterns, and have a willingness to experiment and play.
Materials to bring: A pencil and sketchbook, scrap yarn and needles for swatching ideas, and 400 yards of fingering/sport weight yarn and appropriate needles for starting a larger project.
