Ridiculously Easy But Astonishingly Useful Stitch Patterns with Carol Sulcoski
Expand your repertoire of stitch patterns with this class full of easy-to-work stitches that are versatile and astonishingly useful. There's no reason why you have to work every project in stockinette or garter stitch when there's a world of other stitch patterns out there. We'll look at what makes certain patterns curl and find non-curling options to go beyond garter stitch. We'll look at patterns that are attractive on both sides for items like shawls and stoles, textured pattern stitches that are a good substitute for stockinette, and options for edgings that go beyond plain ribbing.
One or two skeins of #4 (worsted-weight) yarn in a light color (cream, beige, white, etc.) with a smooth texture (such as Cascade 220, Universal Deluxe Worsted, etc.); a variety of needle sizes include those appropriate for the yarn you bring and a size larger and smaller.
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.
