A Sampler of Japanese Tips and Techniques with Beth Brown-Reinsel
Japanese knitting patterns often include an interesting and useful technique. This class will introduce you to an assortment of techniques from Japanese patterns or technique books. Most are variations or refinements on techniques that every knitter knows. Among other things, we’ll look at variations on three-needle bindoff; two vertical buttonholes; a ribbed tubular cast-on; and Japanese bobbles worked with a crochet hook.
Small amounts of yarn for swatching and appropriately sized needles; I suggest sport to worsted weight and size US 5 to US 8 needles; one or two crochet hooks.
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.
