Fixing Basic Knitting Mistakes

Teacher: Karen Lucas

Cost: $85

When: Wednesdays, October 9 & 23, 3:00–5:00pm

Description: Noooo! Something has gone wrong in your knitting! Now what?? Don’t worry! It happens to the best of us! Almost nothing is more empowering for knitters than learning how to fix our (inevitable) mistakes, and you’ll learn more about knitting from making and fixing mistakes than you would from perfection. In this class, geared for beginners, you’ll take a deep dive into the anatomy of knitted fabric. You’ll learn to identify common mistakes; fix dropped stitches in stockinette, garter, and ribbing; and tink and frog (yes, those are technical terms). You’ll get plenty of practice working on swatches, and you’ll come away with newfound confidence!

Prerequisites: Students should be comfortable with knitting basics: casting on, working knit and purl stitches, and binding off.

Homework: You will need to prepare three swatches as described below. Note: if you make mistakes (or suspect you did) in knitting your swatches please leave them “as is” and we will address them in class.

  • Swatch 1: With your light-colored bulky yarn and size US10 needle, cast on 20 sts. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures 4", and then leave sts on needle or slip onto stitch holder or waste yarn (do not bind off).
  • Swatch 2: Work the same as the first swatch, but in stockinette (knit right-side rows, purl wrong-side rows), and then leave sts on needle or slip onto stitch holder.
  • Swatch 3: Work the same as previous, but in 2x2 ribbing (*k2, p2, rep from *), and then leave sts on needle or slip onto stitch holder.

Min/max number of participants: 5/8
