Workshop 8 – Advanced Swing-Knitting™
“Knitting with targets, mirrors and connections – Tirnanog”
This tutorial is for ADVANCED Swing-Knitters™ only. If you want to understand the contents, you must have knitted and understood Swing-Knitting™ Workshops 1-3 and 5 at least!
Swing-Knitting™ Workshop 8 “Knitting with targets, mirrors and connections” involves:
• A short introduction to the theory of target pins and compensating pins. Experienced Swing-Knitters will grasp the concept easily and will be able to train and apply it on their own.
• The horizontal mirroring of a Swing-Knitted sequence, and the tricks you need to know
• The vertical mirroring of a Swing-Knitted sequence, and the tricks you need to know
• The horizontal and vertical mirroring of a Swing-Knitted sequence, and the tricks you need to know
• A detailed explanation of the concept of knitting connections in Swing-Knitting™ – how to add a new piece of knitting to the right and to the left of an already existing Swing-Knittted knit, that has the same knitting direction and continues and completes the stanzas of the already existing (middle) panel.
The workshop includes two knitting examples – the new Swing-Knitting™ contents are explained in great detail, adapted to these knits step by step and trained: Tirnanog and Philipp’s Cowl.
All chains of thought and all knitting steps are explained in great detail, using step photos, schematics and written explanations – for the concepts of target pins and compensating pins, for the different mirror-images of the basic segment and for the knitted connections in the side wings of Tirnanog that continue and complete the stanzas of the middle panel.
On 120 pages, the PDF of Swing-Knitting™ Workshop 8 explains everything in a detailed and reasonable and easily comprehensible way.
