Meet Xandy and begin class with a discussion of the basic techniques and concepts of stacked stitch knitting. Then go over the materials you’ll need for your project, a stacked stitches scarf.
The Increase (20:10)
Next, see how to make increases as Xandy introduces the Knit, Yarn Over, Knit (KYOK) stitch. Notice the holes that are naturally created through increasing and discover a few ways to rein them in.
The Decrease (18:15)
Then, learn all about decreases, specifically the Knit 5 Together stitch. Follow along as Xandy demonstrates many of the different ways you can create this complex decrease.
Combining Increases & Decreases (32:47)
Now, work increases and decreases together to create a puzzle piece swatch. Take a close look at your swatch to see if there’s anything that’s not quite right, and learn how to make fixes!
Stacked Scarf Pattern (35:42)
In this lesson, Xandy introduces the stacked stitch scarf pattern and talks about putting together all the skills you’ve learned. She also discusses some fun ways to use color in stacked stitches.
Next Steps (20:39)
Finally, build on what you’ve learned to construct your own motifs. Xandy shows you how to use stitch stacks to create shaping outside of the stacks. Afterwards, she shares her own design process and some project show-and-tell. Plus, find out how she developed her famous Fox Paws pattern!
Xandy Peters is a knitting designer and teacher, best known as the innovator of the stacked stitch technique and for her Fox Paws pattern. Starting out as a footwear and product designer, Xandy turned to knitting as a way to explore textiles and surfaces without using factory production. She has since made a career out of knitting, publishing new patterns monthly and teaching workshops across the country. Xandy has been published in magazines such as Vogue Knitting, Twist Collective, Knitscene, and Knitty, but continues to self publish most of her work.
