Advanced Machine Knitting Class

Unleash all your creative potential (and that of your knitting machine too!), with this advanced knitting machine class.  You’ll learn beading, cables, shaping and much more.

In this class, you’ll:

  • Build upon the knowledge learned in the Beginner’s and Intermediate classes and progress to more challenging knitting skills
  • Learn various techniques including holding/short row knitting, cables, beading and lace carriage
  • Holding & Short Row Knitting: Here, you’ll learn how to use the holding buttons on the knitting carriage to develop three-dimensional knit structures, volume, shapes and techniques in your work. You’ll experiment with various yarns, colours and structures
  • Knit cords which then can be used with other techniques in your work. The cords can be used as a yarn for hand knitting, trims, weaving, knotting, stitching onto other fabrics and materials.
  • Cables: You’ll learn to use a double or triple prong transfer tool to cross stitches for cables.
  • Shaping: You’ll learn how to use the single and double transfer tool to increase and decrease stitches to create shaping.
  • Lace carriage: Practise using the lace carriage to transfer stitches onto needles for lace punchcard patterns
