Modular Strip Knitting Class
Friday, October 23rd, 1 pm to 4 pm ($60)
Call 514-486-5648 to reserve your spot.
Learn to knit strips that are joined together as you knit so there are no seams. Impressive colour effects are achieved by knitting with one colour at a time. We’ll discuss how this technique lends itself to growing the fabric until it’s the right size and shape and can be used in all sorts of projects like sweaters and knits for the home. We’ll take the technique one step further and create chevrons for a really impressive effect that has great stash busting potential. This workshop teaches the techniques used the Zig andZag blanket featured in 60 Quick Baby Blankets.
