Event Details

DESCRIPTION

The rumors are true – Icelanders knit everything in the round and they fearlessly steek their cardigans but cringe at the mere thought of knitting a whole garment back and forth. The class covers the principles behind knitting in the round both using dpn’s and the magic loop method. Two methods of steeking are covered, the conventional one using a sewing machine (sewing machines provided in the class to practice with) and the increasingly popular crochet method. Examples and tips on finishing are included.

Techniques covered: German twisted cast on, connecting in the round, managing dpn’s, magic loop for small diameters, steek with a sewing machine*, crochet steek, finishing techniques.

Class duration: 3 hours

Student maximum: 10 

Difficulty level: intermediate

Materials: 50 yards of Lopi light in a light color and approx. 10 yards in a contrast color, 3.75 80cm circular needles (US5 32” circular needles) or bring DPNs if you like them, a piece of scrap yarn, darning needle, crochet hook size 2.75 - 3.25 (US C or D)
