Oops! Fixing Mistakes @ Michigan Fibre Studio

Knitting mistakes are bound to happen from time to time. A twisted stitch here, a dropped stitch there can often stop a knitter in his or her row not knowing quite what to do. And then there are those big mistakes that often result in putting a project in a UFO (unfinished project object) pile. Learning easy ways to fix mistakes, often without ripping back, will keep you knitting and finishing projects.

Prerequisites: This class is for the knitter who has enough experience knitting to recognize mistakes.

Skills Taught: Different fixing processes – tinking, frogging, life lines, picking up stitches, twisted stitches and extra stitches, dealing with missing or too many stitches, reversing leaning decreases and cables.

Dates:
Saturday, March 30 from 1p – 4p

Homework: To be done before session meets. Using a light color worsted weight wool cast on 20 stitches and work in stockinette for 2 inches. Do not bind off.

To bring to class:
Swatch
 Knitting tool kit: crochet hook, cable needle, tapestry needle, small ball of yarn from stash.
Cost: $30.00
Class Size: Maximum of 8 students.
