Challenging Stitches From Japanese Designs, Part 1 with Gayle Roehm
Many knitters are intrigued by the interesting stitchwork found in Japanese hand-knitting designs. In this class, we’ll explore some charted stitches which will surely be new to the experienced knitter. How are these stitches challenging? The chart may be hard to interpret (with composite symbols or Japanese footnotes) or the execution of the stitch may be unusual. We’ll do a quick review of Japanese stitch symbology, then swatch four or five stitch patterns. Bring an adventuresome attitude!
Note: Students must be very comfortable knitting from charted stitch patterns. Some familiarity with Japanese stitch symbology is useful but not required.

Supplies
Non-textured smooth yarn for swatching (leftovers are fine) and needles suitable for the yarn (suggested: DK or worsted weight with needles 5 to 7); crochet hook; cable needle or DPN.

Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.

Homework
None
