Class Title: Darn It!

Teacher Name: Heather Storta

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee: $60.00

Class Day/Time: Thursday, 4:00PM to 7:00PM

Class Description:

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). 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 the duplicate stitch, because it duplicates the stitches) and the Scotch method (a woven darn). Both have their uses!


Level:  BEGINNER  can do basic knitting

Registration necessary, class size limited to 20

Supplies Needed: 

  • Swatch
  • contrasting waste yarn
  • tapestry needle
  • scissors
  • sewing thread
  • embroidery floss or dental floss (thin)
  • darning egg or mushroom (optional)

Materials Fee: None

Homework:  Work a 5×5″ swatch in stockinette stitch.   Worsted weight yarn would be best. Use a smooth, light colored yarn for ease of seeing the stitches.
