Description: Come explore this beautiful book with Gayle Roehm, the translator of Hitomi Shida’s Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible. From easy to brain-bending! We’ll start with a stitch pattern that gives you a lot of “bang for the buck” - it is lovely and relatively easy to knit. Then we’ll move on to more challenging stitch patterns with patterning on both right-side and wrong-side rows, plus some complex combinations. You’ll get plenty of practice with author Hitomi Shida’s style, as well as the charts and symbols. Please Note - Students MUST be comfortable knitting from charts for this class.
