Change It Up with Jean Frost
How would you like to a knit a jacket with a stitch pattern that produces a fabric that rivals jackets costing thousands of dollars by famous designers? Students will sample three different stitch patterns to understand the structure. Next, choosing one, they will work with various yarns and color combination to find a fabric they love. Finally, a large swatch will be knitted. Using the information gained from this swatch, we will discuss how to apply it to the pattern of the jacket they wish to make.
3.75 to 5mm/US 5 to 8 needles; yarn will be provided.
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.
