Fixing Knitting Mistakes 1



Description: During this 2-hour session, students will make a mistake-riddled practice swatch, and they will learn how to fix the mistakes without ripping back.  Mistakes students will learn to fix in this session include dropped stitches, accidentally slipped stitches, a knit stitch that should have been a purl stitch (and vice versa), twisted stitches and other similar malformed stitches.  They will practice fixing mistakes in stockinette and ribbing (time permitting).

*Students must be able to cast on, knit, purl, recognize the difference between knit and purl stitches, and read/understand written knitting instructions.

**Please complete the following homework before the first class**

Use a light-colored yarn in worsted or heavy worsted (animal fibers work best) and size 8, 9, or 10.5 needles, CO 30 sts.  Work the following 4 rows to produce a 4-row swatch that is part stockinette stitch and part ribbing.

Row 1 (RS): k18, place marker, *p2, k2* until end.

Row 2 (WS): *p2, k2*3 times, p until end.

Rows 3: Repeat Row 1.

Row 4: Repeat Row 2.

DO NOT BIND OFF!  Instead, leave stitches live on the needle.
