In this workshop we will learn various stop and mesh techniques. You can use them to fix your knitwear. The nice thing is that you can use these techniques to decorate your knitting or purchased jersey. You have to understand how knitting works, for example, at least how to knit your own socks for this workshop. You should not be afraid of a bit of fiddling, but ultimately you can work just as fine or coarse as you want. After this workshop you will be no longer scared to fix a hole in your knitwear. It becomes a reason to make it something beautiful!
The following techniques are in the workshop discussed:
– Decorative by stopping
– By Stopping a small place in your knitting
– Stopping a hole
– Decorative mesh on a thin spot in your knitting
– The basic technique of knitting a small piece in extisting knitware
Evelien Verkerk is an expert in stop and mesh techniques. She also blogs about old knitting techniques and 19th century knitting books on her blog ‘Nederlands Gebreid’.
‘Nederlands Gebreid’ can also be followed on Facebook.
