In this class, you will learn the new technique of applying cross stitch to mesh knitting. It is based on my Mia Hat and Rose Cardigan patterns. The concept is to knit a garment, or an accessory, and use it as a canvas for cross-stitch embroidery. Note: Homework is required. You’ll learn how to create firm and uniformed cross stitches over knits, learn blocking techniques applicable to these patterns, or similar designs, and get inspired by the presentation of the multiple samples in an array of fibers and colors.
Students should bring about 20 yards of fingering-weight embroidery yarn in each of the following colors: Deep Pink, Medium Pink, Light Pink, Green, Light Green; removable stitch markers, tapestry needle, and scissors. Embroidery yarn kit can be purchased from the instructor before class.
