Five years as a yarn shop owner gave her a passion for teaching as well as designing. Jill has been an instructor at Stitches East, Knitter's Day Out, Knitter's Connection, Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet
Show, and many shops. Her designs can be found in Knitter's Magazine, Cast On, and Knitty. She is co-author of An Archive of Squares; 45 mitered squares with color, texture and lace.

6095 Easy Slipped Stitch Mania Slipped-stitch patterns allow you add texture or to create the look of 2-color knitting while only using 1 color per row. Mosaic knitting (one form of slipped-stitch patterning) can bring to mind beautiful, Native American fiber art. There is no stranding, bobbins, or changing color within the row.
We will explore different techniques as well as the do's and don'ts of this method of knitting and how to read two types of charts.
