Using Japanese Stitch Dictionaries with Gayle Roehm
Knitters are finding that stitch dictionaries from Japan offer a wealth of beautiful stitch patterns. We’ll look at the format of the available dictionaries then explore the features and intricacies of some of these stitches. We'll swatch a few of the maneuvers that appear frequently. If time permits, you'll get started on a design of your own.
Note: Must be very comfortable knitting from charts; previous experience with Japanese charts is desirable.
One or two balls of smooth yarn in sport to worsted weight (these can be leftovers), and appropriate needles for swatching. If you own a Japanese stitch dictionary and have a question, feel free to bring it.
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.
