Stripes Beyond the Basics - Veera Välimäki

  • PNE Hastings Room 2 2901 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 5J1 Canada (map)

This class is all about the fun called stripes! How to add stripes to your knitting, how to best work them and how to make stripes extra special with easy techniques.

This workshop also focuses on color in knitting: what to expect from certain colors, which colors to pair and what to choose to begin with. Inspire your imagination and choose colors with confidence!

We’ll also discuss how to use simple stitch patterns like slipped stitches to enhance your stripes, making them just as impressive as stranded or fair isle knitting. 
You’ll learn how to best:

  • Knit joggless stripes in the round
  • Work stripes with short rows
  • Keep the edges neat with two or more colors
  • Use simple stitch patterns to spice up your stripes

Supplies to bring: 
Bring a small selection of colors in sport to DK weight yarn (small leftover skeins are
perfect) and circular needle to go with your yarns.

Homework: None

Class Level: All levels

3 hour class - $120
