Join instructor Ann Glassley for Introduction to Sequence Knitting. This is the EVENING session of the offerings.
What is Sequence Knitting? It's the application of a repetition of simple stitch patterns to create complex-looking fabrics. Pioneered ('Unvented') by Cecilia Campochiaro, and explained in depth in her book Sequence Knitting, this method of knitting will unlock a world of fabrics that can be created without pouring painstakingly over a pattern row after row. A scientist based in Silicon Valley, Campochiaro yearned for knitting projects that she could take on her travels that would not require such close attention, and as a result she's revealed the algorithms that are the underpinning of textured knit fabrics.
Mason-Dixon Knitting released their fifth Field Guide, Sequences, which includes four of Campochiaro's patterns, and will be the text for the class. You'll finish the class series with a good understanding of the techniques, after knitting samples with one and two colors, and discovering ways to apply the methods to scarves, cowls and shawls. You will then select two fingering weight yarns to begin The Parallelogram Scarf.
While this class does not require advanced knitting skills, you should be very comfortable with the knit and purl stitches.
Instructor: Ann Glassley
Class Dates: Thursdays from 6-8pm, April 5, 12, 19, 26 and May 3rd at Purl2 Walla Walla.
-Mason-Dixon Field Guide No. 5: Sequences (available at Purl2 Walla Walla)
