Reading Your Knitting FIBER FRIDAYS with Ann Budd VIA ZOOM!!



Most knitters run into problems when they aren’t able to “read their knitting”—that is, they can’t recognize where they are in a pattern by simply looking at the stitches on the needles or in the fabric below the needles. How do you tell where you are when you’ve put your knitting down in the middle of row? Can you tell how many rows you’ve knitted since the last increase, or decrease? How do you know what type of increase or decrease was worked? In this class, Ann will examine how the basic stitches look in a piece of knitting and how those stitches are represented in charts.

Instructions are provided below for knitting a 42-row swatch of sample stitches.

You will need worsted-weight yarn in a solid light color and size U.S. 7 (4.5 mm) needles.
