Center-out Knitting with Xandy Peters
Take a guided tour of the possibilities of center-out construction accessories. We will look at 3 different cast-on methods for center out accessories and the unique strengths of each method.
Once cast on, we will try out different types of increases and varied arrangements to build different shawl, blanket, and scarf shapes such as a square or other regular polygon, rectangle, oblong, almond, and even the classic circular "pi" shawl. Many traditional lace and colorwork motifs can be converted to work with these shapes for spectacular results.
Join Xandy and build the confidence to cast on and create center out accessories with stitch and color patterns of your desire.
