If...Then: Self Generating Stitch Patterns with Tracy Purtscher
Have you ever had the urge to just cast on but didn't have access to any patterns? Does an intriguing but mindless knit that can be taken anywhere—with nothing but the yarn and needles—seem appealing to you? You will learn how to create a dynamic knitted fabric using self-generating stitch patterns with repeating or evolving motifs. We will make knit/purl textured fabrics as samples to learn the principles . Once understood you will be ready to work these self-generating patterns in other types of knitting—twisted stitches, stranded colorwork, lace, and slipped stitches. Your optionsare limited only by your desires. After you are comfortable with the principles laid out in the classwork we will discuss ways in which you can create your own stitch patterns and what to do if the pattern expires or morphs and no longer is self-generating. Given how easy it is to knit self-generating stitch patterns without having to follow a written pattern or chart, makes Spontaneous Knitting the ultimate comfort knitting with extreme portability— and unique results.
