Good Reading with Gwen Bortner
What is the best way to save time and improve your knitting? Learn to read what is on your needles.
Begin by reviewing basic stitch construction, then learn how to determine where you are in your pattern and how to identify (and fix) mistakes before having to rip. Finally, with your new-found knowledge, convert finished stitch patterns into words. These are valuable skills for knitters of all experience.

Supplies
Homework.
Optional: a finished item with an interesting stitch pattern.

Homework
Work a swatch of a stitch pattern of your choosing in smooth, light colored, worsted weight yarn. Stitch pattern should have at least a 4 stitch and 4 row repeat. Swatch should be at least 20 stitches wide (a minimum of 3 repeats) and 30 rows (a minimum of 3 repeats) Bring swatch on needles. DO NOT BIND OFF. Also bring a printed copy of the stitch pattern for reference.
