Dress up your stockinette stitch! Double and triple wrapping gives you long stitches to create lacy effects that are impressive to the eye, but not as hard as they look. In this class, you’ll work a sampler of novelty stitches, including the elongated stitches used in many of the fabulous patterns from local designer and teacher, Michele Bernstein

This class is held virtually via Zoom, a popular video conferencing service. Participants should already have a basic familiarity with Zoom prior to class. Class will be held at the indicated date and time (Pacific Time) for 2 hours. 3 students min, 12 students max.

Skill Level

Advanced Beginner. You should already know long tail or knitted cast on, knit and purl stitches, common increases and decreases, reading a pattern, and binding off.

Skill Learned

Novelty elongated stitches

Supplies

You need to purchase or have:

  • 50-100 yards in each of 2 colors of DK or worsted weight yarn - lighter, solid colors reveal stitches best. Berroco Vintage DK and Berroco Vintage Worsted are great options.
  • Needles in size to work with your chosen yarn, US #6 - US #8. If you are using circular needles, you will want a needle with a smooth, gradual join between cable and tips.
  • 4 stitch markers

Class fee also includes:

  • handout with several elongated stitch patterns and links to video tutorials
  • coupon code for 20% off any of Michele's patterns featuring elongated stitches on Ravelry.com
Homework

The homework assignment (included in your class packet pdf) will take most people less than 30 minutes to knit. You must have this homework swatch completed beforehand in order to fully participate and learn during class!

What to Expect
  1. After you complete your purchase, you'll be prompted to download a class packet pdf containing more details about class, including:
    • a Zoom link to join the class at the indicated date and time
    • a homework assignment to complete before class
  2. In addition to the download button on the order confirmation screen, you'll also receive an email with this pdf. If you don't see it, please check your spam folder. If you still don't see it, just drop us a line.
  3. Also, remember to print or download the handout onto a device that is separate from your Zoom device, so you can refer to it during class.
  4. Finally, on the day/time of class, log in to Zoom using the link in your class packet pdf. The classroom will be open 15 minutes before class starts. Sign on with plenty of time to make sure your internet, video, and audio settings are all working.
About Your Teacher

Michele Lee Bernstein, PDXKnitterati, loves designing accessories, especially if they use one or two skeins of very special yarn. She's fond of texture (brioche, lace, entrelac, elongated stitches) and using interesting techniques to make small objects sing. Her patterns are available through Ravelry.com and Payhip.com. She loves teaching knitters to be the boss of their knitting and does so at local yarn shops in Oregon, fiber festivals including Vogue Knitting Live, and guild retreats. She taught at Twisted forever, before we went online only! Find her on Instagram, Facebook, Ravelry, and Twitter as PDXKnitterati. Her website is https://pdxknitterati.com/

  • We request that students already be comfortable using Zoom. Because every device is different, teachers are not able to provide much in the way of tech support.
  • Because teachers are planning their schedules around booked lessons, we need at least 72 hours (3 days) notice for cancellation. Given at least 72 hours' notice, we can refund you in the form of store credit. If you provide less than 72 hours' notice or don't call into your appointment at all, you will not be refunded.
  • Your teacher, like so many of us, is working from home during this wild time. There is always a possibility that technology or kids or pets or neighbors or who-knows-what could briefly interrupt your Zoom lesson. If that happens, know we appreciate your patience and understanding!
