Elegant Knit Ribbon Fabric for Jackets with Dawn McCormick
With the abundance of ribbon available to us today, it is time to revisit vintage patterns. Knitting ribbon with today's techniques typically produces a bulky fabric which can be appropriate for some garments. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have the option to create a thinner fabric giving us more design options? In this course, we will review vintage patterns and their construction. A selection of knit jacket appropriate stitch patterns will be provided so that the class can practice constructing these fabrics. The class will close with a discussion of how to finish the ribbon fabric once knitted.
