The Wednesday Eve Sweater Sampler Class – Week 2 and 3

Hello Wednesday Eve Sweater Sampler-rs,

First, of course pictures!

Charis, Beautiful Work - I love that you are getting answers from your Sweater Sampler!

Susan, the fabric you are producing as you enjoy your knitting is quite rich! And again, I am appreciating the learning you are able to have in your sampler knitting!

To review – we went over things learned from doing the Cardigan Border and the Chain Selvedge. We walked through the Sweatshirt Pocket demo. We covered the Bar Increases, uses, how to, setup for, etc.

Here is the link to the video that demonstrates Bar Increase again for you – YouTube – Knit One Front & Back (k1f&b)

Then we went into stripes – the Knit Stripe, the Purl Stripe, and the Raised Stripe – fun stuff; I’ll bring in more examples next class!

For next class, if you have time, please read the section on the Raglan Seamline Decreases pages 42 through 45 (we’ll cover the Raglan Seamline Decreases A-D in this class); and if you are interested in reading ahead, look at the section on Two-Color Knitting, pages 46 to 52.

Also, take a look at the following links to two great videos on the two forms of decreasing we will use in the Raglan Seamline Decreases –

K2 tog – YouTube – How to Knit Decreases – Knit 2 Together – K2tog

and SSK – YouTube – How to Knit Decreases – SSK aka slip slip knit decrease

Well, you all are doing great – again, feel free to email or call me if you find you are having a brain freeze – been there.

See you next week, Happy knitting, Jessica
