For those who know how to knit and purl, and are interested in the next steps. This class covers increases, decreases, written pattern reading, and chart reading. We will also talk about "reading" your knitting. This is a class for people who are tired of knitting straight scarves, and want to see what else is possible. Classes run approximately two hours.
Required for the class:
-yarn (a light colour is recommended while classes are over zoom, black is strongly discouraged)
-needles (straight or circular is fine)
-a cast on swatch, approximately 20 stitches wide
-a camera and mic that work over Zoom
- Zoom. All of our classes are held on Zoom, a free video-conferencing platform. If you don't have an account, you can sign up here. Invitation links will be sent out 24 hours prior to class. Class will start promptly on the hour, so please download Zoom and be ready with all your materials gathered.
If you don't have the materials required, we have put together a kit with all the supplies you'll need which you can find here! If you choose to have your kit shipped, please allow enough time to receive your kit before the date of your class.
About the instructor:
Viviane is a queer person with an interest in fibre crafts that started with Tamora Pierce books as a young child. She learned to crochet as a kid, then relearned in University. She picked up knitting nearly 10 years ago and started working at a yarn store in 2017, where she quickly learned a whole lot more. She has taught beginner and intermediate level knitting skills since 2018, and is thrilled to be working with John and Kelsi on classes at Bistitchual!
