Build a Better Fabric: Perfect Your Knitting Technique


Build a Better Fabric: Perfect Your Knitting Technique

We know how to knit, but do we know how to build a perfect fabric? There’s always room for improvement! Does your knitting “row out” (your purl stitch looser than your knit stitch), are you looking for a better way to control your gauge? What about alternative ways to tension your yarn when working with stiff yarn or slippery yarn? We’ll explore ways to improve your knitting technique by looking at the most important fundamentals, like the job of the left needle tip and the right needle shaft, stitch sizing, and even the correct exit path of your stitch. We will explore edge stitches, cast on and bind offs and a huge array of knitting tip. The last part of the class will be open for all knitting questions, so come with your questions and let’s explore our knitting.

Come with your knitting ready to practice! You’ll be knitting along with me

This is a hands on knitting class, so space is limited to 30.

How to Take a Live Online LessonPrivate online lessons -

I have a front camera on my face so we can talk and an overhead camera shooting my hands so I can demo and teach. I will be switching back and forth between the two cameras.

For most students they just use the front camera on their computer, laptop or tablet. However if you’d like me to be able to see your hands you could use a tablet on a stand (like the ipad pictured here) and hold your hands in front of it.
