Friday AM: Stop Turning! Knitting & Purling Backwards with Patty Lyons
Instructor: Patty Lyons
My favorite knitting trick is to stop turning! If you hate purling, or are unhappy with your uneven tension, or simply aren’t crazy about flipping that 400 stitch basket weave afghan around every time it’s time to do a WS row, learn the joy of never turning! We will learn how to put the knit stitch and the purl stitch in reverse as well as learn basic decreases, short rows and picking up stitches backwards. Knitting and purling backwards is great for entrelac, bobbles, short rows and chart work.
Skill Level: Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off & simple increases & decreases and be able to work them without supervision. Knowledge of short rows helpful but not required.
- Smooth worsted or chunky weight yarn in a light color
- Needles appropriate for yarn
- Cast on 20 stitches
- Work in Stockinette for 3 rows, ending with a RS row (ready for a WS row) (No garter edges.)
