Anatomy of a Yarn with Laura Bryant
Everything you have always wanted to know about yarn but didn't know who to ask: Why does chenille worm? What makes a yarn bias when knit? What stitches are best for a bouclé? Why are some yarns limp when knit?
Develop a notebook of yarn types, with examples for future reference. Learn how different yarns are constructed, how different fibers behave, and how construction affects that behavior. Learn which stitches and sweater styles suit which type of yarn.
Materials fee: $5 for notebook materials and yarns.
