You will learn different ways to rip back your knitting, add lifelines, recognize twisted stitches, pick up dropped stitches in multiple stitch patterns including stockinette stitch, seed stitch, garter stitch and lace. Even more, we will learn how to read our knitting by counting our rows. Join this class and learn the skills needed to master your knitting for years to come. This class has no homework.

3:00 pm to 5:00 pm - Keith’s Tips and Tricks

Is the first stitch of your knitting loose? Do you cast on a new project in both knit and purl? Do you hem the bottom of your knitting? Is your bind off uneven when knitting in the round? Is there a magical loose bind off? How much yarn do you need for the long tail cast on? Why aren’t my stitches even? What is the proper way to measure? Should I slip the first stitch of every row? Find the answer to these questions and many more! There is no homework for this class.

Materials: 2 colors worsted weight yarn, Size 24” US #7 Knitting Needles, Size 24” US #5 Knitting Needles, Darning needle, Scissors.
