Time:10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Instructor:Jolie Elder
Liberating the Labryinth - SOLD OUT

Are you ready for some stunning stunt knitting? Would you like to knit an entire sweater in only 10 or 20 rows? This class will walk you through how to knit labyrinth fabric based on the work of Debbie New. This fabric can show off multicolored yarns to wonderful effect and create kaleidoscopic effects from Fair Isle patterns. Additionally, we will consider under-explored implications including hexagonal labyrinths, lace labyrinths, and side-to-side labyrinths. Impress your knitting friends and yourself!

Prerequisite:  Must have experience with mitered squares. Must know how to work a double decrease (three stitches become one) and a double increase (one stitch becomes three). If you have never made mitered squares, please make the two optional homework swatches (directions can be found here), which are a decreasing mitered square and an increasing mitered square. Know how you like to use markers so you can reliably work a double decrease or a double increase without the line "drifting."

Skill Level Required:  Advanced

Homework:  Know your favorite double-increase (turn one stitch into three) and double-decrease (turn three stitches into one) and how you like to use stitch markers at those points. Please take a few minutes to practice both of those before class if it has been awhile since you have used either technique. If you have never made mitered squares, please work one increasing mitered square and one decreasing mitered square. (Directions can be found here).

Materials Info

There is no material fee for this workshop.  

Students must bring:  class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color); multiple colors of yarn or long-print yarns are especially fun in this technique, a long (40- or 60-inch) circular or interchangeable needle you like with this yarn, stitch markers in at least two colors, and a crochet hook.

We also suggest bringing a battery operated light should you need additional lighting.
