Experimental Large Scale Knitting with Everett Wong

December 01, 2019

Description

You will learn how to take some basic knitting stitches to create jumbo stitches using size 35mm needles. This workshop will show you how to cast on, learn basic knit and purl stitches, adapt knit and purl stitches using five basic Guernsey fisherman pattern combinations: garter stitch, basket weave, moss stitch, garter ribbing and slanted columns and finally cast off, The final result will yield a surface with high visual and tactile impact in colours and textures. You will have a variety of large and sculptural scale knitted samplers at the end of the workshop to be used as wall-hangings or lap blankets. No knitting experience required.
