Class Overview

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.
