Monday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Tuesday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
ETC Intermediate Sampler Vest Enjoy this rare opportunity to share Anna Zilboorg’s ever-evolving knitting world: traveling stitches, designing with strips, embellishing with embroidery. Learn to work twisted traveling stitches back and forth — tricky, but a lot of fun once you master the technique. We’ll start a vest front with a small simple strip. Then relax a bit with Palestrina-knot embroidery before we proceed to the complex center pattern, After working a bit of that, we can start the diagonal strip, joining it to the other strips as we go. When we add more embroidery, it brings all the patterns to a new life.

There will be other embroidered knitting available for ideas for further embellishment. Finishing the vest when you go home will give you a chance to practice all you’ve learned.
