This Patchwork Knit Afghan class consists of four 1.5-hour classes, held weekly.
Cables, basket-weave, braid and leafy all in 1 gorgeous afghan. You will learn to cable, read a chart, follow a complex pattern and sew the patches together to end up with a fun and fabulous Patchwork Knit Afghan. It’s pretty amazing. The pattern, stitch markers and a row counter are included in the $99 course fee; I will send you the pattern after you register so you can go to the store of your choice and buy the yarn you love to match your decor.
Maximum 4 people to a class guarantees lots of individual attention and learning in a comfortable, stress-free environment.
In this first class we’ll calculate gauge and analyze the pattern, learning the different abbreviations and figuring out how to work from a chart. You will start the first square, learning how to cable and braid, using stitch markers and row counters.
Now we’ll make the leaf pattern square, which involves yarn-overs and slipping stitches both purl-wise and knit-wise. A new chart is introduced as well.
It’s time to work up a wave pattern square, adding in some new techniques including right and left twists through back loops.
Last but not least we’ll start a diagonal rib square, and review the basketweave as well. Most of the class will be spent sewing 2 or 3 pieces together with a couple of variations so that you can get the look you’ll enjoy for many years to come.
