I am thrilled to be returning to the Tatter Blue Library to share my latest design, tips and tricks on how to embroider this beautiful flower onto a swatch of simple knits and purls.
In addition to a hands-on stitching lesson, the session promises to be jam packed with information on the motif itself, yarn choices, gauge, drape, color possibilities, and how to incorporate the technique into your garments and accessories. Before you know it, you'll be craving the meditative qualities of straight stockinette, confident in your ability to turn it in to a unique masterpiece, after the knitting is complete.

Reversible Embroidery on Stockinette Classes
Barcelona Knits, November 7, 2021!
Are you craving a unique way to add visual interest to your knitting? This class will have you looking at straight stockinette with a newfound appreciation! Come learn how to turn both the right side and wrong side of your work into a canvas for embroidery. Over the course of the class, we will talk about anchor stitches, grids, motifs and more. You'll be delighted to discover that this technique can be applied to right and wrong sides of the same fabric for a gorgeous, reversible piece! Students will work the technique on both sides of a swatch during the class as a starting point to be able to incorporate this style of embroidery into other projects in the future. In addition, we will talk about the design process and how to approach incorporating "stitching on stitches" into your work. Before you know it, you'll be craving the meditative qualities of stockinette, confident in your ability to turn it in to a unique masterpiece after the knitting is complete.
