Pick Your Knits and Purls – Introduction to Continental Knitting
We’re thrilled to bring you this highly-demanded class! When you learn Lorilee’s brand of continental knitting, you will minimize your hand motions for a more comfortable, and perhaps speedier, way to knit. Understand exactly what motions have a bearing on stitch gauge. (It’s not what you think!) Learn to create even knitting by sizing your knits and purls equally. Practice the knit stitch then move on to purl, increases, decreases, and ribbing where efficiency really pays off. For those of us wanting to learn the Continental – let’s take advantage of the opportunity!
Important Note: This workshop takes place at the Holiday Inn Express in Cardiff.
Level of Experience: All levels welcome.
Homework: Cast on 24 stitches and knit 4 rows using a, light-colored worsted weight multi-ply wool yarn. Use circular needles size 5 to 7, slippery steel preferred. No straight needles; no cotton, acrylic, single-ply or splitty yarn. Do not bind off and bring along 50 grams or more.
Materials: Bring at least 50 grams of the worsted weight multi-ply wool yarn that you used for your homework.
Materials fee: None
