Amazing Couture Stitches with Jean Frost
One of the unique things about couture clothing is the fabric. In this class we will work with some little-known knitted stitch patterns to produce amazing textures using ordinary yarns. By manipulating the stitches and combining yarns and colors, wonderful fabrics come to life. With these stitches, you can turn a simple garment into a masterpiece.
3 balls contrasting colors, #3 (DK) or #4 (worsted-weight) (wool or wool blends preferred) plus odds and ends from your stash; needles of various sizes.
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.
