Hand Knitting: Embellished Knits
Knitting is a perfect background for embroidery and embellishment. The fabric is flexible, and its grid-like surface provides an inspiring canvas for hand manipulation. This class introduces participants to simple but visually effective methods of adding another layer of surface interest to their hand knitting. Explore how you can use basic knitted structures and stitches as “guides” for adornment.
A broad range of embellished knitted swatches will be used to illustrate all techniques to the student and to serve as inspiration to design your own creations.
