Swatchbuckling with Carson Demers - A Virtual Class - March 20th
Saturday, March 20th from 10:30am to 2:00pm with a 30 minute break from noon to 12:30pm
Avast ye maties! Let’s bring improved ergonomics to life in your knitting technique. We’ll swatch to improve your posture, comfort, and efficiency. We’ll examine yarn tensioning techniques, and all phases of stitch creation first with simple then more challenging swatches and stitches. We’ll also look at ways to add movement to knitting to avoid stiffness and injuries caused by disuse. Class is appropriate for students who are comfortable with basic knit purl stitches. Swatches of basic cable and lace patterns are also made in class. Stitch patterns are provided in both charted and written formats.
Learner’s Materials: Students are asked to bring light colored worsted weight yarn (4 oz. is sufficient) and needles appropriate for yarn, a bath sized towel, and materials to take notes if they wish to do so.
Class is suitable for all levels of knitting experience.
