Our Punch Card Knitting Class will teach you how to use punch cards with your knitting machine and experiment with various punch card techniques to create beautiful designs with textured patterns.
You will learn how to:
- Knit with more challenging techniques
- Set up punch cards and learn how to use the various punch card functions on the knitting machine to knit, tuck, slip, weaving-in and fair isle designs
- Experiment with pre-punched cards to create texture in your work
- Create your own freehand punch card design
We teach on the following domestic knitting machines: Brother Domestic Knitting Machines, Model KH836 & KH881.
At the end of the class, you’ll have a collection of experimental punch card swatches which can be developed further into your design ideas for fashion, interiors and accessories.
