11:00 AM - 1:00 PM (EDT)

“Pick up and knit” is an instruction that often causes a lot of stress and worry. This session is all about how to pick up stitches, easily and neatly, to ensure that you have the right number of stitches and the result looks great. We’ll cover garment necklines and buttonbands, sock gus-sets, and mitten thumbs; we’ll also talk about special situations like Entrelac and pick-up-and-purl.

Unlock the secrets of squishy, captivating brioche knitting! Working brioche in the round is easier than flat, and two colors are easier to keep track of than one. You’ll learn the magic of working this fun and fluffy stitch as you begin to work the Bri-Licious Cowl in class (you will not finish the cowl during the class time but will know everything you need to know to finish on your own). This class is suitable for first-time brioche knitters.

"Wrap & Turn" is not a dance move, it's a fabulous way to create shapes with your knitting. Short rows are used in some sock heels, in shawls to create curves and in garments for bust shaping. In this class we'll discuss five common methods of working short rows (and hiding them, just as important!): wrap and turn, yarnover, Japanese, German, and Shadow. We’ll also touch on how to change one method for another in a pattern.

Take the next steps in brioche knitting by learning to add increases and decreases to your knitting. We’ll cover multiple options for both increasing and decreasing, including tips for controlling the slant of our stitches and which colors lay on top. We’ll work our sample in two colors in the round to help us more easily and visually approach the lesson.

Brioche knitting gets even more fun once you start expanding your color play. This class will unlock the secrets of knitting brioche back-and-forth in two colors, including casting on, working a selvedge, and tips for keeping track of your rows and colors. Once you’re confident with the standard two-color brioche stitch, we’ll delve into syncopated brioche, a technique that allows you to enliven your brioche knitting with fascinating color patterning.

11:00 AM - 1:00 PM (EST)

This class is specifically designed for less-experienced knitters and is all about knitting literacy: being able to “read your knitting.” You will leave class a more competent, informed knitter. Ever look at your knitting and say, "What happened THERE?", or picked up your knitting project and wondered "Where am I in the pattern?"—how many decreases or increases have I worked? what row was I on? and why did this end up too big/too small?? Ever panic as a dropped stitch ran down your knitting, not knowing what to do? Take this class! Divided into two sections, Knowing Where You Are and Identifying and Correcting Mistakes, this class teaches how to "read" your knitting--to recognize what you are looking at, where you are, and what to do next, whether that be correcting a problem or moving ahead!
