Slipping, Floating, Tucking: Knitting Gymnastics!
Knitting is based off of two fundamental stitches, right? We knit, and we purl. But what happens if we. . . Slip? In this class, we’ll discuss how slipping (and slipping’s compatriots, floating and tucking) stitches instead of working them can lead to a pattern of their own and add texture, dimension, visual interest, and structure to our knitted fabric. We will start with a small swatch to understand the concepts, but by the end of class you’ll have the skills you need to create your very own slipped stitch masterpiece!
Experience needed: you are comfortable and competent with knitting, purling and decreasing
