Tink, Drop, Frog: How Do I Fix This? Saturday, March 28 from 10:30am-12:30pm - from Twisted Classes
How to fix (and notice!) common mistakes in your knitting. This is an essential class for new knitters who want to be more self-reliant and pump up their knitting mojo.
All classes are intended for adults (roughly high school and up) unless otherwise noted. Please read our class policies and cancellation information before registering and contact us if you have any questions!
Basic long tail or knitted cast on, knit and purl stitches, binding off.
Reading your knitting, picking up dropped stitches, unknitting stitch by stitch (tinking), tearing out rows at a time (frogging), and other common mistakes.
Knit one flat, stockinette stitch swatch (knit on the right side, purl on the wrong side) in worsted weight yarn (light color preferable) on appropriately sized needles. Cast on 16 stitches, and work 16 rows. Leave on needles - do not bind off. Students who do not finish their homework will be able to observe the techniques used, but may not be able to perform them in class.
