Skill Saturday: Reading a Chart

Skill Saturday is a new series of hour long workshops designed to introduce you to fresh topics in knitting and crochet, or help develop your skills with useful tips and tricks.

On April 28th our topic is reading a knitting chart. While a knitting chart can be your pest friend when the time comes to knit a complicated pattern, the grids and symbols can be challenging if you've never worked with them before. In this one hour workshop we'll learn to compare a chart to the knitted fabric it produces, and familiarize ourselves with the most common symbols used in patterns today.

Participants should bring a smooth, light colored yarn and appropriate needles to practice some knitting in class.
