Ribbing Roundup with Carol Sulcoski
We all have an "old faithful" ribbing we use on nearly every project. In this class, we'll break out of our ribbing rut. We'll start with some simple and sturdy options, then try out some ribbings with decorative elements like eyelets and mock cables. Learn to transition from ribbing to other stitch patterns, to increase and decrease in ribbing, and see how ribbing choice can affect the look of the finished garment. We’ll finish by investigating some alternatives to ribbing.
Smooth, #4 (worsted weight) yarn in a light, solid color and needles of the appropriate size along with needles 1, 2 and 3 sizes smaller.
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.
