Required Skills: confident with knit and purl stitch, casting on a binding off.

In this class we will learn how to intentionally do common increases and decreases in our knitting. This includes: Make one right and left, yarn over, knit front and back, knit two together, slip slip knit and others.

These techniques can add shaping to garments, as well as visible stitch patterns to your work. We will make a sampler in class to practice them.

Required Materials: 10” straight needles or 24” circular needles in size 4.5mm, one 50g ball of dk weight yarn and stitch markers, darning needle. We recommend working with light/bright colour yarn in class so that it is easy to see the stitches clearly.
