In this class, you’ll:
-Learn various techniques including holding/short row knitting, cables, beading, ribbing and lace carriage
-Holding & Short Row Knitting: Here, you’ll learn how to use the holding buttons on the knitting carriage to develop three-dimensional knit structures, volume, shapes and techniques in your work. You’ll experiment with various yarns, colours and structures.
-Cables: You’ll learn to use a double or triple prong transfer tool to cross stitches for cables.
-Shaping: You’ll learn how to use the single and double transfer tool to increase and decrease stitches to create shaping.
-Lace carriage: Practice using the lace carriage to transfer stitches onto needles for lace punchcard patterns
-Beading: You’ll learn how to add beads into your work on the knitting machine using a latch tool. Become confident with combining beading with cables or other techniques to create beaded knitted fabrics.
