Deconstructing Stitch Patterns with Anna Zilboorg
Many beautiful stitch patterns are too difficult to follow because they are written out stitch by stitch, and one cannot comprehend the whole. The mind revolts. In this class we will take complex patterns, chart them (you'll never have difficulty with charts again), and analyze their components. You will then not only be able to follow them, but to judge before knitting whether they will be easy or demanding, pleasant or frustrating, and best worked flat or in the round.
Graph paper with 4 boxes per inch, pencil, eraser.
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.
If possible, send a pattern that is troubling you to firstname.lastname@example.org (This email will only work for questions regarding this class.)
