Working with Antique Patterns with Franklin Habit
Don't let the tiny type and archaic language fool you there's a gold mine of beautiful, functional designs waiting to be discovered within the pages of Victorian and Edwardian books and magazines. In this session, we'll discuss the history of patterns; the selection of appropriate yarn and needles; methods for deciphering and trouble shooting, and 'reverse engineering' from photographs and pieces. You don't need to be a historian or re-enactor to enjoy this class just a knitter with a curious mind.

Supplies
1 ball smooth, DK or sport weight yarn (such as Cascade 220 Sport, Dale Baby Ull or St-Denis Nordique) in white or a light color; wool or another non-slippery natural fiber is recommended; straight or circular needles in a size appropriate for the yarn.

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
