Build a Better Fabric: Combination Knitting
Description of Class
Have you tried learning continental, but the purl messes you up? Do you feel like you often have uneven tension? Or perhaps you are already a combination knitter and you’ve ever been told you knit “wrong”, or been asked “what are you doing”, take heart . . . there are no wrong ways to knit as long as we control our stitches. A combination knitter works through the back loop to knit, and the front loop to purl. It can be a fast and easy way to knit, but simple adjustments must be made to follow Western patterns, like how to knit in the round, and understand left and right slanting increases and decreases, and how to work twisted pattern stitches. If you are a Western knitter, then learn the amazing advantages to this knitting methods and how and when you would combine it with your own. If you are a Combination Knitter, learn how to make stitches better and easier for your style.
Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, know simple increase and decreases. Recognize the knit and purl stitch and be able to work them in a pattern without supervision.

Costa Rica Knitting Retreat!
August 27th – September 3rd, 2016
|For sixteen years Hope and Barry Blazer had a wonderful yarn shop, Accents On Knits in Morristown, NJ. Fourteen months ago they “semi-retired” to live the dream in Costa Rica where they established Accents on Knits Limitada to host our “Knitting Retreats to Costa Rica”.|
Join me, Carol Sulcoski and Brooke Nico for 7 days of knitting, sun and fun!
Yesterday morning it was in the 30s when I woke up, so I’m not gonna lie, I’m doing a bit of California dreaming. Luckily I don’t have wait to long, since Vogue Knitting Live Pasadena is just 4 weeks away. If you haven’t booked yet . . . hop onto Kayak and find a flight, this is not to be missed!
Vogue Knitting Live Pasadena
How could it be nearly April. This year is going faster than ever. I’m lining up all sorts of fun things for the rest of 2016 and have even lined up some fab events for 2017. I promised a summer update, so here’s a round up of the Summer teaching events (HINT: read all the way down to the bottom of the page, I have a VERY exciting surprise!!!)
Summer 2016 Knitting Events
2016 has started out with a bang. A great teaching trip to TNNA and Vogue Knitting Live NYC. Now I’m getting ready to head out to Stitches West, but before January & February becomes a memory, here’s a round up of the Spring, Early Summer teaching jobs.
If you are in the New York area, you can book a private lesson with me here.
2016 Knitting Events – Spring & Early Summer
Wow. A couple of weeks ago, I ran a raffle to win a goodie bag full of yarn, needles and notions. I asked my students to share a swatch, or project that they made from class. There were some amazing entries, and the randomly chosen winner is one of my Vogue Knitting Live students from the most recent show in New York.
And the Raffle Winner is . . .
“In which Patty ventures to Manhatten, teaches 165 students, loses her voice and is saved by her friends and the staff of Vogue Knitting Live.”
That makes for two weeks full of yarn, friends, classes, amazing students, and this year . . . a killer cold that knocked me on my &%$#. The fact that 13 days later I’m still sick, might explain why this blog took so long to write.
