Class Overview

Never abandon a project again! Build your skill set as you join expert and enthusiast Lucy Neatby for this one-of-a-kind breakdown of knitted fabric. During class, Lucy will empower you with the knowledge of how your stitches really function, so you can understand your knits and purls, and work them like never before. Along the way, you'’ll see how stitches relate to each other in both rows and columns, making any situation or mistake approachable. Then, you'’ll find out how to expose the stitches you don'’t see to duplicate stitches and replace portions you don’'t like. Wondering how to easily join knit pieces together? You'’ll conquer unique ways to graft — joining knitting even when your pieces are uneven —and discover two new allies for an incredible finish. Plus, find savvy but simple fixes for common issues such as replacing rows, shortening length, fixing big holes and changing finished details.
