Machine Knitting 102: Texture and Patterns

In this class, students will continue expanding their Machine Knitting skills and understanding on their own individual Brother 864 standard gauge knitting machine. This class covers more advance patterning techniques, such as  the use of punch cards and tuck stitches, tension swatching, cables, weaving techniques and other hand-manipulated stitches. Students will gain a much deeper understanding of the capabilities of a knitting machine and will leave with a collection of swatches and a small project based on their vision.

Morning Series classes do not come with free Open Studio time.
