Darn It! - SOLD OUT

Have you ever found holes in your knitting? Worn out a sock heel or toe? Don’t throw your knitting out – darn it!! Darning is a valuable skill (and not just for knits.) Darning can seamlessly mask a hole, or it can take center stage and decorate your knit fabric. It can be done to mask a hole and seamlessly blend in, or it can be done to decorative effect. We'll begin with the essential step: learning to stabilize the fabric before darning. Then we'll learn two ways to darn fabrics – the Swiss method (also known as duplicate stitch, because it duplicates the stitches)

Prerequisite:  Basic knitting skills

Skill Level Required:  Beginner

Homework:  Work a 5x5" swatch in stockinette stitch - worsted weight yarn would be best. Use a smooth, light-colored yarn for ease of seeing the stitches.
