Class 10/22 - Get Your Stitch Together - How to pick up stitches and fix other mistakes.
October 22nd 10:30-12:30
Does the thought of making a mistake or dropping a stitch keep you from enjoying your knitting? When you've made a big mistake, do you assume the only way to fix it is to start over? Does this photo of dropped stitches scare you? It doesn't have to! I pulled my knitting off of the needle, just to take that photo and a minute later, had them all back on.
This class will teach you how to fix these and many other common mistakes with confidence so you can enjoy your knitting to the fullest.
Prerequisites: ability to knit, purl, yarn over, and decrease.
Prior to the class, please knit a swatch according to the instructions below. You will need approximately 20g of a worsted or chunky weight yarn and size 7-9 needles (gauge is not important, this is just something to practice on for the class). We recommend something that isn't excessively fuzzy, so you can see your stitches well.
