Create versatile designs and catch the eye in fun new ways with modular knitting! Join Artyarns founder Iris Schreier and learn a trending style that uses smaller knitted shapes such as triangles, squares and diamonds to create breathtaking motifs and multi-directional designs. During class, you'll explore the world of modular knitting by creating three exclusive Iris Schreier accessory designs: the Curved Wedges Cowl, the Zigzag Shawl and the Center-Increase Triangle Shawl. Along the way, Iris will demonstrate the cast-ons, increases, directional knitting, unique shapes and other techniques you'll need for each. Plus, you'll find out how to modify each design to create a completely new project that suits the style you're looking for.
Master curved diagonal triangles by knitting along with Iris to create the Curved Wedges Cowl. Iris walks you through the cowl's construction of wide and narrow triangles, starting with an easy provisional cast-on. You'll knit the cowl flat, then seam it together with an invisible three-needle bind-off.
