6 items left


Ever want to modify a knitting pattern, but didn't know where to start? Like the colourwork from a sweater yoke, but want to knit a hat instead? Or maybe you love 70% of a cabled sweater design, but wish the cables were those dreamy ones from that other sweater you saw? Or you love your knitted mittens (cables, colourwork, textured stitches, whatever!), and wish you had a hat to match? This class will walk through the strategies and techniques used to plan and execute a successful modification to an existing knitting pattern. Whether you are planning to knit a garment or accessories, the planning and skills to help make your modification a huge success is easier than you think - This class will walk through the strategies and techniques used to plan and execute a successful modification to an existing knitting pattern. Problem areas to watch out for, incorporating stitches from stitch dictionaries, planning for repeat differences, yardage differences, and swatching for modifications will all be covered in this hands-on workshop. Prepare to leave the class excited and ready to modify your next knit!


Skills Required: Intermediate to Advanced. You should be comfortable using all/most of the techniques required in the patterns you bring to class.


Homework: Choose 1-2 knitting patterns that you are excited to try to modify. Read them through and decide which elements you want to incorporate into your modification.


Please Bring: Please a notebook and pencil, 1-2 knitting patterns that you wish to modify, along with a sample of the yarn you have planned for it for potential swatching (if you have decided on the yarn, it's fine if you haven't!). If you want to knit one item, (e.g. a sweater) but want to make that one item a mix of 2 or more patterns, please bring all relevant patterns in.
