Center Out Knitting
This class is a guided tour of the possibilities of center out accessories. There will be three different cast on methods for center out projects and the unique strengths of each method. After casting on, the class will try out different arrangements and types of increases to build different shawl, blanket, and scarf shapes. It could be a square or other regular polygon, rectangle, oblong, almond, or classic circular “pi” shawl. Many traditional lace and colorwork motifs can be converted to work with these shapes for spectacular results. By the end of the class, students will feel confident using these cast on methods to create center out accessories and add stitch and color patterns to various shapes.
