Description

Hem-Top Socks or Lace Scarf on the Knitting Machine - Friday PM
Instructor: J.Wurst
Date: Friday, May 10 – 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Min/Max: 4 / 6
Min Age: 12
Class Fee: $35
Materials fee payable to instructor: $30 fee will include pattern handouts and sock yarn wound onto a cone. Participants will choose either Hem-Top Socks or the Textured Scarf.

Scarf Option: Make a designer scarf on the knitting machine (either flat or circular machine) with a textured tuck design similar to lace. Learn how to hand-manipulate stitches, add beads while knitting, and more.

Sock Option: Learn how to do perfect fitting heels and toes while knitting socks on the knitting machine (either flat or circular machine). We will do a Picot-Edge hem top and a hand-transferred lace design (optional). The instructor will emphasize knitting natural fibers on the machine and cover topics such as appropriate tension, short row shaping, use of ravel cord, closing the toe, and more.

Standard flat 200 needle machines, mid-gauge or bulky needle machines, traditional circular machines, or modern reproduction sock machines can be used. Beginner machine knitters are welcome but the machine must be in working order and the participant must know how to cast on. Participants without a machine are welcome to register and observe only.

Students should bring: Any knitting machine (flat or circular) in working condition and knowledge of how to cast on. Machine must be working, repairs will not be done in class. Ribber attachment not required. Participants are encouraged to bring a knitting machine stand or table suitable for clamps. Instructors will bring one extra machine and some extra stands for flat machines.
