Captivating Chevrons with Laura Bryant
Made iconically famous by the Italian design house Missoni, chevron stitches are wonderfully dynamic and easily manipulated by hand knitters.
Laura will lead you through several variations on how to form chevrons, and then will discuss gauge, design application, and color selection. Your hands-on swatch will be a permanent record of how each type of chevron appears, so future project application will be a snap.
Note: Must know how to work both k2tog and SSK and what the difference is between them.
Optional materials fee: $3.00 for instructor-supplied yarns.
2 oz of worsted weight yarn in light solid color; an assortment (3-6) other colors in similar yarn 1 oz or less OR $3.00 materials fee for instructor supplied yarn.
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.
