Don't Panic! Fixing Knitting Mistakes

In this 60-minute class, we’ll go over unknitting, picking up dropped stitches, fixing simple cable stitches, adding a missed yarnover or taking out an accidental yarnover, and more.

You need to create two swatches BEFORE the class (the most enjoyable homework you'll ever have!) One swatch should be a 4” X 4” swatch of garter stitch (knit every row) and one swatch should be 4” X 4” of stockinette stitch. Leave both swatches on the needles. Use light colored worsted or chunky weight yarn, on size 8 or larger needles so it's easy to see your stitches.

The fee for this class is $15.

Saturday, February 17, 3:30 - 4:30 pm
