About the Class
This is an ideal class if you have a basic understanding of machine knitting and you want to develop your textile design skills or experimental skills. You’ll learn beautiful stitches and techniques and explore the use of colour, textured structures and stitch manipulation.
In this class, you’ll:
Gain a firm grasp of basic machine knitting skills for industrial (Dubied) hand flat knitting machines
Learn how to set up a Dubied knitting machine, including casting on and off, changing between different coloured yarns and how to blend and mix yarns together
Learn various stitch structures and techniques, such as needle layouts, hold stitch, tuck stitch, 2 x 2 rib, racking and selective needle use
Practice how to use a stitch transfer tool to create hand manipulation techniques for ladders, lace holes and freeform methods
- Have a better understanding of knitwear yarns, machines and gauges
At the end of the class, you’ll create a technical folder with a collection of experimental swatches of techniques, stitch manipulation and knit structures. You will be able to develop these techniques further into your own designs experimenting with different textures and yarns to produce unique fabrics in a variety of weights for future projects.
Suitable for: Those who have a basic understanding of machine knitting, knit professionals, fashion or textile students & hobbyists
