Prerequisite: Fall Sweater Yarn Education

Date: Wed, Oct 9 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm OR
Time: Sat, Oct 12 from 1:00 - 3:00pm

How do I choose the right yarn for my sweater? It helps to know a bit about the yarn and its construction and properties in order to make the best decision for you. Sometimes you have a strong preference about the way the yarn feels in your hands as you knit it, or other times you want a finished garment that behaves a certain way. We want you to be educated about the yarn you choose.

This workshop is a pre-requisite before taking one of the garment classes this fall at Stix.  As an attendee who is signed up for a sweater class, you will receive a small bit of each of the selections for that class. Your homework after this lecture will be to knit or crochet a gauge swatch to bring to the first meeting of the sweater class you are signed up for.

There is a $20 fee for this workshop;  you will receive a $20 credit towards the yarn you purchase for your sweater class.

Date: 4 Wednesdays: Oct 16, 23, 30 & Nov 6
Time: This class is full.

Julie Weisenberger uses her signature way to knit top-down using English Tailored sleeves rather than raglan sleeves. Learn this method by making the Emma pullover with bulky yarn. The Cocoknits Method brings together a distinct system for knitting a top-down, seamless sweater that you will actually wear and have the time to knit. This method of sweater knitting is perfect for the detailed-oriented, rule-following who wants a well-tailored, well-fitting sweater.

You may choose the Emma Sweater, version A, B or C for your first Cocoknits sweater.

Requirements: Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book and Cocoknits colored stitch markers (both available for purchase at Stix), and you must attend one of the Prerequisite: Fall Sweater Yarn Education classes.

Sign up for a knitting class at Stix Two-color brioche scarf

Date: Sat, Oct 19 @ 1pm is full.
Time: Sat, Nov 16 from 1:00 - 3:00pm

Brioche can be worked flat or in the round and with one color or two; we will teach you the flat method using two colors in this class.

Bundled in Brioche is the pattern for this class. You will need lots of colors to achieve the color block effect (an odd number of colors works best). The pattern is written for worsted weight yarn, but you can choose a different weight if you like. You will need a circular needle in a size appropriate for your weight of yarn.

Once you have mastered brioche worked flat, you will be itching to try it in the round, which, you will be pleased to know, is easier!
