Learning Stacked Stitches with the Fascination Wrap with Xandy Peters
Class starts with a stacked-stitch project. This exciting technique is presented in a manner to fit a lace- or stranded-color knitter's mindset.
Stacked stitches are a type of increase and decrease used to create vertical movement within a row, and extreme, wavy stripes without stranding on the wrong side of the piece or the use of other traditional colorwork methods.
After the introduction to the basic principles, we will cast on a scarf or swatch to discover how each row of stitches fits together as you form a flat fabric.
We will learn how to move markers, keep track of stitch count, and to fix mistakes in a stack pattern. We will also learn to weave in ends at the end of each color stripe to save time during finishing.
__Worsted weight scrap yarn in multiple colors, and 3+ colors of
fingering weight yarn for those who want to start the scarf project
__circular needles with a flexible cord in a corresponding size to your yarn and a few adjacent sizes (metal or plastic needles are strongly recommended)
__Optional materials: scratch paper, highlighter tape, and a digital row counter. Patterns are provided by instructor.
