The Fix is in! – handling mistakes and repairing your knitting
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.
Workshop length: 3 hours
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.
You’ll need a small swatch of knitting, about 20 stitches, knit 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.
Materials to Bring to Class:
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, and a pair of scissors or snips.
