If you know how to knit and purl, then you have the basic skills you need to create a number of gorgeous patterns. Join designer and instructor Jill Wolcott and learn how you can combine knit and purl stitches to create beautiful styles, invigorating textures and new possibilities in familiar techniques. During class, you'll find out how knit and purl patterns really function, so you can substitute eye-catching stitch patterns in place of stockinette. Along the way, you'll discover how to work a variety of exciting, new stitch patterns — from a fabulous welt stitch to radiant, reversible ribbing — creating a knit strip with each. Jill will also lay out how edges function in different borders and joins and how these combinations affect gauge and drape. Plus, you'll have the chance to combine your beautiful strips into a one-of-a-kind throw blanket!
