Embroider Your Knitting with Anna Zilboorg
Embroidery has been used always and everywhere to embellish fabric, while knitting has been left bare save for a few lazy daisies and French knots. In this class we'll integrate simple embroidery stitches into simple knit stitches to create many different effects, both new and wonderful. Learn to work back stitch, cable chain, Palestrina knot, cross stitch flower, and fly stitch, whether you are right- or left-handed.

Supplies
Homework swatch, contrasting color yarn for embroidery (may be multi-colored), tapestry needle sized to your embroidery yarn (that is, smaller than the big fat yarn needle), scissors.

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.

Homework
Cast on 20 sts. Work k2p2 rib for 3 inches. Change to stockinette and work another 3 inches.
