The Fix is In - Stephanie Pearl McPhee

  • Atrium Inn Seymour Room 2889 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 2A1 Canada (map)

This class is best for intermediate knitters - advanced beginners will do fine if they can read their knitting (identify knit and purl on the needle), execute a simple chart, and understand a simple cable.

This class explores options and solutions for when bad things happen to good knitters. We’ll explore dropped stitches, missed yarn overs, mis-crossed cables, selvedge stitches (and when not to have one) and how to fix (mostly) damage to knits like pulls, holes and runs.

Supplies to bring:

  • a small quantity of smooth worsted weight yarn, similar to the one you worked the swatch with- but in a contrasting colour
  • a darning needle
  • a crochet hook appropriate for the yarn
  • two DPNs a size or two smaller than the ones you’re using for the swatch
  • a pair of scissors or snips

Homework: You’ll need a small swatch of knitting, about 20 stitches, worked in Stockinette (knit right side rows, purl wrong side rows)  to a square. Please use smooth, light coloured worsted weight yarn, and needles you feel are appropriate. Do not cast off - bring the work still on the needles.

Class Level: Intermediate

3 hour class - $120
