Knitting 1.5: The Purl Stitch (In Person)
Taught by Rhiannon Platt
Rhiannon Platt is at least third generation fiber artist. Raised by seamstresses, crocheters, and fiber artists of all kinds, she picked up her first pair of needles over a decade ago. Since her first scarf, Rhiannon has gone on to fabricate for Lion Brand Yarn, Nathan Vincent, Olek, Jeila Gueramian, Londonkaye, and Levi’s. In between commissions, she finds time to write patterns and make endless sweaters.
Building on the beginning knitting class, students will take their work a step further by learning the purl stitch. The purl is considered one of the foundational stitches in knitting. In addition to learning the stitch, we will also learn how to read it when written in patterns and to combine it with the knit stitch, for effects such as ribbing and seed stitch.
Students must know how to cast on and the knit stitch. Materials will be provided.
