2 hour session: Fri 8th CT 7-9pm/ Sydney Sat 9th Oct
XRX is very familiar with my designs and published my book in 2009, I taught with them over 15 years at shows in the USA.
So, from my Sydney studio, I will step you through how garments are formed in Mitres. Homework prior to the class will introduce students to Mitres and this sample will be continued in class, completed after the class. Techniques for knitting in ends as colours are introduced, picking up stitches, and following and understanding diagrams.
I trained in the Uk in fashion textiles, working with both woven fabric and knit fabric, so I think like a dressmaker, creating my fabric as I knit, adjusting my knit fabric with larger needles for swing and drape, or smaller needles to support the garment and fit the shoulder.
I have sold ready-made handknits and made to measure handknits for over 30 years, running a team of up to 100 hand knitters, so I think about the knitability of a design too. I will share my design knowledge covering different knitting techniques from textured stitches to Mitre Knitting.
The class is Fri/Sat PM in the USA = AM the following day in Sydney Sat/Sun
