Circular Knitting Bag of Tricks – Patty Lyons
Maximum participants: 25
Patty digs deep into her bag of tricks to show you some of her favorite circular knitting hacks. Patty has some truly unique UNventions (some brand new – never published or taught!) that will make your circular knitting sing. Learn how to make a completely jog free cast on and bind off, as well as some truly magical jogless joins (can we say one row stripe!). There will be tips to avoid ladders from dpns and the weird tight stitch at the magic loop turn and so much more. Finally, Patty will introduce you to Helix knitting, a spectacular circular method, AND (extra credit, if time allows), even tricks to working W&T and German short rows in the round without the icky hole. Get ready to kick your circular knitting up to the next level.
