Slipped Stitch Mania with Jill Bigelow Suttell
Slipped-stitch patterns allow you to add texture or to create the look of 2-color knitting while only using 1 color per row. Mosaic knitting (one form of slipped-stitch patterning) can bring to mind beautiful, Native American fiber art. There is no stranding, bobbins, or changing color within the row. We will explore different techniques, the do's and don'ts of this method of knitting, and how to read two types of charts.
2 colors (1 white or light and 1 bright or dark) #4 (worsted-weight) yarn; 4.5 or 5mm/US 7 or 8 needles.
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.
