Twisted Classes Class - Lisa’s Elegant I-Cord Edge Workshop: Saturday, September 14, from 1:30 - 3:30pm; with Lisa Carney-Fenton
Knitting stripe patterns is engaging, however all those color changes can mean weaving in many ends or having an edge to your work that looks “messy.” In this class you will learn how to conceal the contrast color yarn at the side of your work. This technique can be applied to your own designs, or to most designs using stripes and contrast colors in pattern work. In this class we will learn how to carry the yarn for a two row stripe and a multi-row stipe pattern, while “hiding” the yarn not in use at the edge of the work. The yarn can easily be picked-up a few rows later when you work with it again. This Elegant I-Cord Edge technique creates a clean, polished, finished edge to all your knitted projects. A pattern showcasing this technique was first published in the Knitty Winter 2016 issue of their online magazine. Designs featuring this technique were also published in the Brooklyn Tweed Outpost Newsletter Winter 2017 and will be included in The Yarnery Wearwithall Pattern lines for Winter 2019.
