Fixing Mistakes in Knitting
An in-person class with Molly Conroy
Nov 13, 9:00am-12:00pm PST
The most empowering thing a knitter can learn is how to fix their own mistakes. We are much more likely to take on new and more complicated projects if we know we can successfully troubleshoot, identify, and fix our mistakes.
Learn how to fix mistakes in your knitting in stockinette, garter, seed stitch, cables, basic lace, and edge stitches. The class includes correcting the direction of increases and decreases and how to avoid and correct twisted stitches. We will also talk about best practices in Tinking, Frogging, and if Lifelines are necessary.
