Broaden your knitting horizon and change your life with Stephen West and StevenBe. This Dynamic Duo workshop is designed to be an amazing opportunity to have fun while learning Stephen and Steven’s best tips and tricks. It will set you free from patterns as written and help you feel comfortable making your own modifications and design decisions. Remember: a pattern is only a guideline!
Experience the magic of mixology, taking a variety of yarns from different brands, weights, and fiber contents to create magical and unique scharves.
Start with a base pattern from Stephen or Steven and learn different methods of creating angles and edges, modifying the shape with modular knitting, adding new colors, and combining fibers in unique ways to customize the pattern and truly make it yours.
This workshop will begin with an exercise in knitting to shape without the use of written words. Review of increases, decreases, and short rows to create shape is integral to this step. Each student will begin his or her project in a corner, side, center, or top.
This exercise-to-project workshop will be a fun challenge to guide you in thinking outside the box and working creatively. It will leave you comfortable with deviating from the written pattern and making your own design decisions.
You will work on your project with guidance from Stephen and Steven, including a presentation of the Dynamic Duo’s favorite tips and tricks. You are encouraged to take copious notes so you can complete your project after the workshop.
Choose your yarns and make sure they are wound and ready to go.
The same three-hour workshop is repeated in the afternoon, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
