Introduce some whimsy into your knitting by playing with elongated stitches. In this class, we’ll explore several fun new stitch patterns including multi-row elongated straight and sloped stitches, “dip” stitches, passed-over elongated stitches, and the Indian cross stitch. We’ll see how stacking and alternating these stitches takes our knitting in new and inspiring directions. Students will work a swatch using these various techniques.
Participants should provide about 30 yards of worsted-weight yarn and compatible-sized needles (US 7–9) for working flat.
Homework: In advance of class, please cast on 30 stitches and work four rows of garter stitch, working flat (back and forth).
