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.
Saturday, March 7 from 10a – 1p
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:
Knitting tool kit: crochet hook, cable needle, tapestry needle, small ball of yarn from stash.
