Teacher Name: Jolie A. Elder

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee: $60.00

Class Day/Time: Friday, 9:00 AM to Noon

Class Description:

When learning to knit, the progression is often garter stitch, then stockinette, then 1×1 ribbing. We know what garter and stockinette do, but have you really explored the potential of 1×1 ribbing? In this class we will explore the hidden potential of this common stitch. We will discover it is the basis for a variety of astonishing reversible fabrics. We will explore splitting and twisting techniques that create unusual 3-D sculptural shapes. We’ll discover how to pick up to create ruffles and flaps, perfect for sipper insertions.  We’ll learn the Y-increase, a knitting heresy that is bilaterally symmetrical with no leaning direction.  And we will end by looking at the special properties and reversible nature of this ribbing, including cables, lace, intarsia; and its relationship to double-knitting. Come unlock the potential of a stitch pattern you already know!
