5260 Easy Improve Your Knitting Technique We know how to knit, but do we know how to build a perfect fabric? There's always room for improvement! Does your knitting 'row out' (your purl stitch is looser than your knit stitch), are you looking for a better way to control your gauge? What about alternative ways to tension your yarn when working with stiff yarn or slippery yarn? We'll explore ways to improve your knitting technique by looking at the most important fundamentals, like the job of the left needle tip and the right needle shaft, stitch sizing, and even the correct exit path of your stitch. We will explore edge stitches, cast-on and bind-offs and a huge array of knitting tips. The last part of the class will be open for all knitting questions (those you have put in the "bag of why"), so come with your questions and let's explore our knitting.
