Punch Card Knitting

Punchcard Knitting

Our Punch Card Knitting Class will teach you how to use punch cards with your knitting machine and  experiment with various punch card techniques to create beautiful designs with textured patterns. 

What You Will Learn in Our Punch Card Knitting Class

You will learn how to:

  • Knit with more challenging techniques
  • Set up punch cards and learn how to use the various punch card functions on the knitting machine to knit, tuck, slip, weaving-in and fair isle designs
  • Experiment with pre-punched cards to create texture in your work
  • Create your own freehand punch card design

At the end of the class, you’ll have a collection of experimental punch card swatches which can be developed further into your design ideas for fashion, interiors and accessories.
