Description

Phoenix From the Ashes Workshop Description
Things are rarely as bad as they seem. Taking stock of a new project to determine all is going according to plan. Re-thinking and revising. Swatches and how to read them honestly. Plan to practice ‘defensive knitting’, to keep your options open. Fundamental techniques will be practised. Laddering back, knitting downwards, Duplicate stitch (Swiss darning), Mattress stitch, and grafting (Kitchener stitch) without loose stitches. And when all else fails, tips for ripping back.
Supplies Usual knitting paraphernalia
Crochet hook
Scissors
Blunt darning needles
A pair of knitting needles
At least 2 short length (6”) dpns smaller in size than used for your swatch, ideally made from a lightweight material (bamboo or wood).
Small amounts of similar weight, brightly contrasting yarn in at least three colours.

Homework Swatch required.
In a light, single-colour, smooth, wool-rich yarn in a worsted weight or heavier (avoid single-ply or Lopi yarns if possible), cast on 60 sts and work 2+” of Stocking stitch (knit one row, purl one row), end on completion of a purl row. Cut off yarn and leave the stitches on the needle.
