Full Day Class
You learned the basics of creating a yarn from fiber to finish in Yarnitecture, now let’s put it into practice!
In this class we will spend our time sampling for a specific project.
From our in-class stash you will choose a commercial fiber to work with to sample through draft, ply, color manipulation, finish and knitting to make the perfect yarn for one of our class-exclusive patterns.
Will you work toward a lace scarf project, a textured cowl, or a perfectly plain stockinette hat?
While you work we will explore how each decision in the spinning process affects your finished yarn and your finished project.
A few of the things we’ll discuss are:
- Choosing fiber and fiber blends
- Drafting for loft or density
- Plying for stitch definition
- What using a variegated fiber means to your stitch pattern
- Keeping yarn consistent through a project
- How to evaluate your yarn.
- Elements of successful sampling
- How to sample quickly
My Yarnitecture 1 class or book is recommended before taking this class, but if that’s not possible please have the ability to adjust your wheel and make a plied yarn that pleases you.
If you’d like, bring pattern ideas that you’d like to spin and knit.
