Patty Lyons Workshop 4

Thursday, May 5, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Workshop is at the San Dieguito united methodist church!

Stop Turning: Knitting and Purling Backwards

Lyons,Patty Knittingbackwards(1)Skills Required: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off and work simple increases and decreases (K2tog, SSK, YO, M1). Knowledge of short rows is helpful but not required.

Patty’s favorite knitting trick is to stop turning. If you hate purling, or are unhappy with your uneven tension, or simply aren’t crazy about flipping that 400-stitch basket weave afghan around every time it’s time to do a wrong side row, learn the joy of never turning! We will learn how to put the knit stitch and the purl stitch in reverse as well as learn basic decreases, short rows and picking up stitches backwards. Knitting and purling backwards is great for entrelac, bobbles, short rows and chart work.

Materials / Bring to Class:  Any worsted or chunky weight, non-splitty yarn. Whatever needle works with your yarn.

Homework:  Cast on 20 stitches, work in stockinette for three rows, ending with a right side row (ready for a wrong side row). Do not work a garter stitch edge.
