Description

Love those classic diamond shapes called Argyle, but are mystified about how to accomplish them? In this class, you will learn the classic technique of knitting Argyle flat, along with a seaming method that makes the seam nearly invisible and not bulky. Students will make an Argyle sample swatch, learning how to wrap yarns to prevent holes, how to add in bobbins, and other Argyle tips and tricks. You will also learn the calculations to design your own Argyle diamond patterns for different gauges. You’ll discover the fun of watching these diamonds grow, but beware, Argyle can become addictive!

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Participants should be able to accomplish long tail cast on, basic sts (K, P, SSK, K2 tog).Having worked with a chart will be helpful, but a quick overview of that skill will be covered in class as well.
