Addictive Argyle! (and Other Retro Designs) with Harry Wells
Do you love those classic diamond Argyle diamond socks, but are mystified about how to knit them? You will learn the classic technique of knitting Argyle flat, and a nearly invisible seaming method that isn't bulky. Each stage of argyle-sock construction will be addressed, which is similar yet different to the traditional top-down heel-flap sock. We will get started on how to chart your own Argyle patterns for different gauges, see very cool retro and contemporary variations, explore other intarsia sock ideas, and discuss incorporating Argyle patterns into garments and accessories.
Note: Class begins on Friday afternoon and concludes Saturday morning.
