Even More Challenging Stitches From Japanese Designs with Gayle Roehm
Japanese hand-knitting patterns often use complex and interesting stitch patterns. This class will introduce you to a group of patterns that present unusual challenges in executing the stitch or deciphering the chart. There are lacy stitches, textured stitches and stitches that require peculiar manipulation. Bring a really adventuresome attitude.
Note: These patterns are not part of 6017 (previously 617-3) Challenging Stitches. You MUST be comfortable knitting from charts and familiarity with Japanese symbols is helpful.
2 or 3 colors of smooth, #2 to #4 (sport to worsted-weight) yarn (these can be leftovers) and appropriate needles, including needles for your preferred method of circular knitting (dpns or 2 circulars). Have a few extra needles or dpns on hand and a cable needle.
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.
