Incredible Increases; Dramatic Decreases with Judy Pascale
This class takes the mystery out of which decrease or increase to use by creating an “answer all” sampler of numerous techniques. The advantages and appropriate appearance of each variation are worked and discussed. An added bonus will be using a creative technique to add stitches that will allow you to work the front button and buttonhole bands in a rib pattern at the same time as your body of work. With this technique you can create a perfect button hole to enhance your jacket or cardigan in the exact desired location. Culminate this class by learning to use different weights of yarn within the same garment by creatively increasing or decreasing in an invisible method.

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.
