K08 Mastering Mosaics with Edie Eckman
Thursday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Turf Valley – Poplar A
Dramatic colorwork using only one color at a time, easy enough for beginners but intriguing to experienced knitters—what could be more appealing? Mosaic knitting does just that and more. It’s forgiving of uneven tension, doesn’t require exact stitch counts, and allows you to go on autopilot every other row. You can switch up stitch patterns without affecting the gauge. The downside? Understanding this fascinating technique can be somewhat confusing at first glance. Banish that bewilderment as you learn to read mosaic charts, play with garter stitch and stockinette stitch variations, and maybe even get started designing your own mosaic patterns. Skill level: Advanced beginner, intermediate, and expert. Maximum number of students: 15. Student should bring: Two balls of smooth worsted-weight yarn: one in a light color and one in a contrasting dark color (no black), appropriate-sized needles. Homework: None.
Class Code: K08 Class Fee: $55. Materials Fee: $1.
