Knitting Lessons: Summer, 2014

June 10:  Decoding a pattern (getting a clear vision of the entire project before mistakes are made innocently, causing ripping out or discouragement. Includes “mapping” the pattern.)


June 17:  Casting on and binding off appropriately so that the product is “of a piece.”


June 24: no class


July 1:  Increases and decreases: why so many types; how to use them; when to use them.


July 8:  Knitting in the round, either on circular or double-pointed needles.


July 15:  Beginning lace techniques: the yarn over, increases, decreases, pattern repeats, knowing the pattern, mapping the project.


July 22:  Edging techniques: slipping the first stitch, creating a firm edge with garter stitch, single or double seed stitch, etc.  Answer the big question: “Why won’t my scarf lie flat?”


July 29:  Understanding how yarn content, texture, plumpness and needle size contribute to a desirable product.


August 5: Taking a “formula for a stitch design” and reproducing it over any number of rows and across any number of stitches.


August 12:  Creating a larger version of a stitch sequence to make a larger product: for example, reproducing a dish cloth design in an afghan. How many repeats; making the number of stitches fit the design.  This is the second stage of August 5 lesson.


August 19: Open class: any request can be considered.


August26:  Review of the summer’s classes: answers to any questions that still lurk in one’s mind.
