Kim McBrien Evans - In Stiches Class
Date: Sept 16th, 2023
In Stitches Stitch patterns create our favourite textures in our knits, and should be as unique as we are. Let’s develop a library of personalized stitch patterns, by expanding and contracting, manipulating and warping common stitch patterns. Learn how to adapt a favourite pattern to best suit a garment, scarf or shawl. Learn how to plan, map out or improvise a stitch pattern to travel in a dynamic way across your knits and how to incorporate it into newly increased or decreased stitches. **Note: this is a theory class that includes some playing with yarn. No specific project will be created, but many many evil plans will emerge!
Homework: Gather 1 or 2 stitch patterns that you love to work with. Send those examples to Kim so we can look at them together in class.
