Back To STITCHES West 2018 Market Session List

Friday 10:30 am - 11:30 am     SOLD OUT
TT42 Easy Better-than-brioche Scarf Elise Duvekot’s variant of Knit One Below is an easier and better way to achieve the brioche look. Each row simply alternates knit and knit-one-below stitches. The knit fabric lies flat, making it perfect for blankets, shawls, and this scarf.
Learn the best cast-on and bind-off for K1B fabrics (yes, it matters!), how to find the stitch in the row below on both sides of the work, and how to use the slide maneuver. This class will get you off to a good start—you won’t want to stop, and you'll go home with all you need to know to make this 2-color scarf.

Saturday 10:30 am - 11:30 am
CC10 Easy Embroider Your Knits: The Basics Anna Zilboorg’s Splendid Apparel introduced the knitting world to a new way of adding color and emphasizing pattern to your knitting with a little embroidery. Let’s keep it simple, learning 4 stitches and playing with color and placement on k2, p2 ribbing. If you have embroidered for years, but never added it to your knitting . . . or never threaded a needle, this basic cuff will get you started.
Please bring 1 completed cuff to class.

To Knit Cuff:
With 110 yds #4 (worsted-weight) yanr and 3.75mm/US 5 needles, cast on 38 stitches. Row 1 (RS) [K2, p2] to last 2 stitches, k2. Row 2 [P2, k2] to last 2 stitches, p2. Continue to knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches until piece measures 4" x 6" from cast-on. Bind off in pattern. Do not seam. If you want to make a wine cozy instead of a cuff, do not bind off. We will work the embroidery, then you will transfer the stitches to double-pointed needles and work the base.
