I'll Put a Hex on You!: Hexagon Stitch and Other K1 Below Textures with Harry Wells
Knitting in the Stitch Below is a technique that can create a wide variety of textural interest, checkered patterns, and embossed ribs in a knitted fabric that is thick, soft, and supple. As we cover all those variations and their characteristics, you will learn the techniques and practice them. One-color and two-color versions will be covered. You will have the choice of starting a hexagon-stitch cowl in the round or a scarf knitted flat using any of the textures learned.
Note: Must be able to accomplish the following without assistance: long tail cast-on, basic stitches (K, P, SSK, k2tog), and knitting in the round on circular needles.
