New Directions in Log Cabin Knitting
With Amy Snell
Aug 8, 1:00-3:00pm CDT
The concept of Log Cabin knitting is straightforward—the only trick is that you build your piece out from the center in all four directions. Because the knitting process is modular, each section offers an opportunity to create. Learn best practices and build it simple, or build it complex.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
Let’s review the best practices for how to knit Log Cabin blocks and learn different ways to pick up stitches for varying edge effects. You’ll begin to see that each log give you an opportunity to construct stitch and color combinations that are limited only by your imagination!
