Up your color work game by giving your knitting the slip. This 2 hour class explores using slipped stitches and mosaic techniques for adding color work to knitting without stranding. Different textures result, and there’s no steeking if you want a flat piece. We’ll knit a small sampler as we practice different slip stitch and mosaic patterns ranging from very simple to more complex, showing how you can get a completely different look by changing which side you hold your yarn to when you are slipping a stitch.
Level of Experience: Good for beginners as well as experienced knitters wanting to learn a new skill. Just be comfortable with knit and purl.
Materials and Supplies Needed for Class: Any fingering or sock yarn in a Main Color (MC) and a Contrasting Color (CC). You can use more than one CC (scraps, too!) if you like as long as it contrasts with the MC. The CC could also be a variegated color way (but keep the MC to a solid or semi solid). A pair of either circular or straight needles in a size that will give you approximately 23 sts/4” in stockinette stitch with your fingering weight yarn.
Materials fee: None.
Cost: $30 for members ($55 for non-members which includes Guild membership through 2021)
Class size: 25
