Stranded Knitting and Steeking @ Michigan Fibre Studio
Feb 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Stranded Knitting is a knitting technique used to create patterns using multiple colors of yarn. The use of multiple colors makes the knitted fabric look quite complex. But don’t be fooled, only two colors are used in any given row and the knitting is usually worked in the round making it easy to see the pattern.

Steeking is a Scottish word meaning to fasten or close. It is the steek that allows a knitter to work stranded knitting in the round and still knit a cardigan. The steek creates a place in the knitting that can be cut to create an opening after the knitting is completed, turning a pullover into a cardigan!

This class will use the Steek This Coffee Cozy pattern to learn stranded knitting and steeking.

Prerequisites: The student must be able to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.

Skills Taught: Stranded knitting, chart reading, steeking, and  button holes.

Dates: Thursday, February 15 & 22 from 7p – 9p

Cost: $40.00

Materials: To be purchased at Michigan Fibre Studio.
 Steek This Coffee Cozy, a free pattern on Ravelry.
 4 colors of a 100% wool (not superwash) in a worsted weight, see pattern for yardages.
 Needles in size US 5 (DPNs or circulars).
 Three matching buttons.
 Crochet hook – size F.

 Sharp scissors and stitch markers.

Continental Knitting @ Michigan Fibre Studio
Mar 3 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Continental knitting is a method of knitting that requires the knitter to hold the working yarn in the left hand. Instead of wrapping the yarn around the needle with the right hand the knitter uses the right needle to catch the yarn and pull it through the loop on the left needle. The catching motion is sometimes referred to as picking. This method of knitting can be done very quickly because the knitter is working at the tips of her needles and the throwing motion of English knitting is eliminated. It is also convenient for two color knitting; one color can be picked and the other thrown.

Prerequisites: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off.

Skills Taught: Continental knitting.

Date and time: Saturday, March 3 from 1p – 3p

Cost: $20.00

Materials: To be purchased at Michigan Fibre Studio.

 One skein of worsted weight yarn in a light color.
 Needles – US size 8 straight or circular – circular needles are preferable as they are easier to use.

Homework: To be done before class. Cast on 20 stitches and knit 4 rows.

Class Size: Minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 8.

Instructor: Amy Gallmeyer Knitting
