Want to conquer a versatile method that will set your projects apart from the crowd? Join popular designer Bristol Ivy and discover bias knitting: a simple style that uses increases and decreases to create a new style of diagonal shaping complete with incredible texture. During class, you'll learn how to knit on the bias by starting a series of four fabulous accessories with Bristol. Along the way, you'll conquer a variety of bias shapes, from chevrons to mitered squares, each with its own distinct appeal. Bristol will also teach you how to knit on the bias both flat and in the round, and you'll find out how to add new stitch patterns to your bias knitting. Plus, you'll learn how to give all your bias projects a beautiful finish with best practices for blocking.
Designer Bristol Ivy introduces you to bias knitting and the beautiful drape and fun shapes it can create. Learn about the simple geometry you'll encounter, then cast on for your first project, the Simple Bias Cowl, which you'll knit flat, then graft together with Bristol's guidance.
Typically, bias knitting has increases and decreases on every right-side row, but you can vary this rate and thus the shape of your knitting, too! You'll see how with your second project, the gently undulating Bias Ripple Scarf. Bristol also addresses how to avoid and fix mistakes in your work.
By mirroring your bias knitting, you can create chic chevrons. With decreases at the edge of your work and increases at the center, you'll create peaks. Reverse the order for valleys. Mix up your stitch count for off-center chevrons. Let your inner designer loose!
