5103 Intermediate Surprisingly Special Techniques Learn techniques that Anna has found more useful than she might have imagined. Most important is the perfect buttonhole—and it is a perfect buttonhole. There is also a k1, p1 rib with neat, even stitches; easy wrapping for clusters once, twice, and thrice; knitting backwards with two colors—never purl Fair Isle again, plus other hints which are more or less arcane.

5102 Intermediate All about Stranding This basic stranding workshop covers knitting with two colors, one in each hand, two in your left hand or two in your right hand. We'll make and cut steeks without a sewing machine and carry colors over long distances.
Sunday 8:30 am - 11:30 am
6067 Intermediate Deconstructing Stitch Patterns Many beautiful stitch patterns are too difficult to follow because they are written out stitch by stitch, and one cannot comprehend the whole. The mind revolts. In this class we will take complex patterns, chart them (you'll never have difficulty with charts again), and analyze their components. You will then not only be able to follow them, but to judge before knitting whether they will be easy or demanding, pleasant or frustrating, and best worked flat or in the round.
