Learn the basic stitches, how to read the charts, and how to visualize the stitch pattern within the charts. Next, explore background stitch choices and what impact the scale of the stitches will have on Dimensional Tuck stitches. Finally, you will learn the tips and tricks for measuring gauge and working Dimensional Tuck in the round.
