Patty's Knitting Bag of Tricks - a workshop with Patty Lyons: SU Jun 16, 10 am - 1 pm

Availability: Out of stock

From our teacher:

"There are so many excellent knitting tricks that make our lives better. Over the years of knitting and teaching, I’ve accumulated quite a few fantastic tricks.  I love it when I’m teaching a class, and a student declares, “I love that tip!”.  So, I’ve decided to dig into my knitting bag of tricks and put them all in one class.  From how to do a better SSK and make matching size YOs to how to avoid the gap at the end of a bind-off, how to tighten your first stitch, how to make better neck divides, and more. Get ready to find your new favorite knitting tricks!"
