Exploring the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible with Gayle Roehm

About Exploring the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible with Gayle Roehm

From easy to brain-bending! The Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible (JKSB) includes a wide range of stitches and techniques to create lovely sculptured knitting. We'll start with a stitch pattern that gives you a lot of “bang for the buck”: it’s lovely and relatively easy to knit. Then we'll move on to other stitch patterns with more challenge: patterning on both right and wrong sides, with complex combinations. Swatches include borders and yoke wedges, as well as overall patterns. You’ll get lots of practice with Hitomi Shida’s style, and with the charts and symbols. Feel free to bring any questions you may have from the book.

Materials, Equipment, and Supplies the Student Must Bring to Class

Notebook, pen and pencil for note taking; two or three balls of smooth yarn for swatching (leftovers are fine) and needles suitable for the yarn (suggested: DK or worsted weight with needles 5 to 7); crochet hook; cable needle or DPN; yarn snips or scissors.
