Summary: This course offers a broad study of the processes, materials, and techniques used in knitting. This is an extremely useful skill within the more broad category of fiber arts, as one can make multiple household items and items of clothing by knitting.  The course aims to help established knitters take their knitting further and make more challenging items and will also include information on the history of knitting and the various cultural knitting traditions around the world. 

Students will learn advanced techniques for knitting: multiple types of cast-ons and bind-offs, cables, colorwork, lace, lifelines, short rows, pick-up-and-knit, felting, steeking, working backwards to repair knitting, blocking, and applying arithmetic to knitting in order to achieve a proper fit.  By the end of the course, students will have a functional knowledge of everything needed to design a knitted piece.

Prerequisites: In order to succeed in this course, students must have already mastered several basic knitting skills: cast on; bind off; knit, purl, and combinations of thereof; increase and decrease; knitting in the round; and grafting (I will provide instructions and review for anybody who needs it, but knitters should be familiar with this concept).

Required materials: please see syllabus.
