Skill level is intermediate.
Prerequisite: Students need to be able to work in the round, make decreases, and not fear a basic chart.
Maximum 20 students.
½ day workshop
Students receive a handout in booklet form.
No materials fee.
2 swatches with live stitches ready to go in class.
With class yarn and appropriate needles, cast on 24 stitches and work back and forth a few rows to establish stockinette fabric (RS knit, WS purl).
With class yarn and appropriate needles for working in the round, cast on an even number of stitches and establish a few rounds of 1x1 ribbing.
2 homework swatches in class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color)
needles to work that yarn both flat and in the round
Note: We will be working flat first, then the separate swatch in the round, then back to the flat swatch.
|setting up a left-leaning decrease|
No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. I have a projector if the facilities can accommodate it. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.
