Mitered knitting is a technique for knitting squares or diamonds and joining them together without seaming by picking up stitches from an adjoining square to start a new one.  This technique allows you not only to make lovely throws and accessories, but beautiful garments as well.

In this class you will learn:

  • How to knit a mitered square with edges that allow you to easily and cleanly pick up stitches for adjacent squares.
  • How join squares together.
  • How to weave in ends as you go.

Practice yarn and needles will be provided

Level:  Intermediate Beginner.  Students must be completely comfortable with the knit stitch.

Cost: $35

 

Instructor: Carla Billingsley

Carla Billingsley rediscovered knitting shortly after her 40th birthday when she fell in love with handpainted and novelty yarns. At first she only made rectangles and triangles: scarves, throws, and shawls.  Eventually she worked up the courage to try lace and socks.  After learning to turn her first heel she realized that you can learn anything if you set your mind to it, and that learning is really easy if you can take a class with a good teacher.  In 2014 she and her husband Curtis moved to Texas and in June 2015 they opened Quixotic Fibers.  From the beginning, her vision for the shop was that it is not just a place to buy yarn and fiber, but that it should become a community resource dedicated to the preservation and development of the fiber arts, a place where knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners can gather to learn from and to inspire each other.
