Learning Stacked Stitches with the Leaf and Star with Xandy Peters
The Leaf and the Star are two fun ornaments that demonstrate different ways to use stacked stitches in small projects. Stacked stitches are increase and decrease techniques used to create vertical movement within a row. They create unusual shapes in knitting and extremely wavy striped colorwork without strands on the wrong side of the piece.You will leave the class with the confidence to move on to larger and more complex stacked-stitch projects such as the Fox Paws wrap.
Note: Patterns will be provided.
