Switch Stitch Technique and Loganberry Hat.
Friday, October 16, 2020
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (EDT)

This class is a great intro to a new reversible knitting technique. I'll be teaching the basics of this two sided technique, which is simpler than it looks. We will knit a swatch and cover all the skills needed to make the hat. There are charts in the pattern for various design options, or it can be made in plain stripes. When you are ready you can knit your hat with any weight of yarn you like and in any size.

Pattern reading. Chart reading.
Homework Required?
Cast on 20 sts with one color (any method, this is just a swatch) then knit 2 rows with the other color. This provides a good base with both colors attached.
I will provide a pattern by email.
Supplies Students Need
Two solid colors of the same type of smooth yarn with a good color contrast (stash yarn is great). Sport weight/DK are ideal but fingering or medium are fine if you are more comfortable using them.

Needles (any kind, we are going to knit a swatch) of the largest size recommended for the yarn.

It's a good idea to get comfortable with the technique before you decide what yarn you want to use for your hat. Switch stitch is thicker than single yarn knitting and more flexible (and a bit thinner) than double knitting.
