You are knitting nicely when suddenly you notice it: a mistake in your knitwork, 5 cm back in your project! Drawing out is a waste of time, that is why you will learn in this workshop how to correct errors while the project is still on your needles. You learn how to pick up dropped stitches (in the middle and on the edge of your work!) And how to correct a decrease or increase. You will also learn a good way of repairing an error in a lace- or cable pattern. If you have a project with this kind of mistake, take it with you! In that case, a cushion in a light color and a package of pins will also come in handy.
This workshop is suitable for a wide range of knitters; we all make mistakes when knitting. To get the most out of this workshop, it is advisable to have already completed some knitting projects. These do not have to be very complex projects, but experience with simple decreases such as 2 knits and pull over, increases such as twisted increases as well as some simple ajour is useful.
