Darning is a valuable skill (and not just for knits). Darning can seamlessly mask a hole, or it can take center stage and decorate your knit fabric.

We’ll begin with the essential step: learning to stabilize the fabric before darning. Then we’ll learn two ways to darn fabrics — the Swiss method (also known as duplicate stitch, because it duplicates the knit stitches) and the Scotch method (a woven darn). Both have their uses!

Gotta darn it!

I have a bag of socks that need darning and various tools. I have a darning egg, darning mushroom and a loom but didn’t know how to use any of them. After this class not only do I understand how each works but I understand the techniques for invisible patch, decorative patches and woven patches. Great class - if offered again I’m thinking of taking it as a refresher.
