Addictive Argyle! (and Other Retro Designs) with Harry Wells
Love those classic diamond shapes called Argyle, but mystified about how to accomplish them? In this workshop, you will learn the classic technique of knitting Argyle flat, and a seaming method that makes the seams nearly invisible without bulk. Each stage of the construction of an argyle sock will be addressed, which is both similar and different to the traditional top-down-heel flap sock. We will get started on how to chart your own Argyle patterns for different gauges, see very cool retro and contemporary variations, explore other intarsia sock ideas, and discuss incorporating Argyle patterns in garments and accessories.
