Kate's Coming

There are still a few spots in Kate Atherley's class this Saturday afternoon.

Fixing Mistakes

description: This class will teach you how to spot and fix mistakes in your knitting, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned expert. We'll share tips for safely ripping out stitches and rows, for fixing mistakes without ripping out, and for deciding when you don’t need to bother fixing at all. We'll also discuss strategies for fixing mistakes in completed projects, and addressing common mistakes that come up when working a pattern like missing an increase or decrease

class details: I show how to pick up a dropped stitch (and of course, dropping and fixing an incorrect stitch before picking it up). I discuss when mistakes should be fixed - is it visible, is it structural? I show how to handle inadvertent yarnover holes. And pattern level mistakes - what if you're off by a stitch after increasing or decreasing? How to darn up a hole or dropped stitch after cast-off. I demo "tinking", and feeding a needle through your knitting before you start ripping it out, and how to use a lifeline.

skill level: beginner to intermediate
