Play around with a sampling of horizontal stripes! Practice single and multi-row stripes, both back and forth and in the round. Learn how to prevent or mask the jog at the beginning of a round. Make an informed decision about when to cut the yarn and how to weave in the ends.
Combine Stripes, Stripes, and More Stripes with some of Sarah’s other upcoming classes — Something from Nothing and Knitting in Circles, for example — to learn everything you need to make a colorful top-down hat, toe-up socks, or a bottom-up bag.
Techniques to be covered
- single-row stripes (flat and in the round)
- multiple-row stripes (flat and in the round)
- stripes across stitch patterns
- eliminating/hiding color jogs
- determining when to cut the yarn between stripes
- weaving in ends for stripes
- All knitting class sessions will take place online via Zoom at the appointed times only, and will not be recorded.
- A Zoom link will be emailed to each student 24 hours prior to each upcoming class session.
- The online instruction will consist of two windows: one with Sarah’s smiling face, and one with on-camera close-ups for demonstration purposes. Each student’s smiling face will also be viewable in a window.
- Each student will be responsible for using Zoom (super easy by clicking on a link) on an electronic device that is large enough for the instructor window and demonstration window to be clearly viewed.
- No refunds.
