K201 – Backwards Knitting

Be a leader in backwards thinking! Knitting stranded colourwork, a bulky blanket, or maybe some entrelac? In this two hour class, Fran will show you the magic of knitting backwards, which helps to avoid flipping large, bulky projects around. It’s also helpful for short rows and stranded colourwork! She’ll also help you out with working from a chart, and “reading” your knitting. Knitters must be comfortable knitting and purling in the conventional way. If using circular needles, a minimum length of 24 inches is recommended.
