I’ll Put a Hex on You! Hexagon Stitch and K1 Below Textures
With Harry Wells
Aug 7, 1:00-3:00pm CDT
Knitting in the stitch below can create stitch patterns with textural or color interest—or both. We’ll learn the K1 Below technique on a two-color check pattern, overview other textures, and then move on to the more complex Hexagon stitch.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
Knitting-in-the-stitch-below can create patterns with a wide variety of textural interest. We will learn and practice the K1-Below technique on a two-color check pattern and then move on to the more complex Hexagon stitch. Other textural stitches with 1, 2 and 3 colors will be presented. Also, you’ll try a complex 2-needle cast-on that is appropriate for the Hexagon Stitch and any other expansive knitted fabric.
