Workshop 5 is the largest workshop I probably will ever write (?) – 103 pages, 94 photos and illustrations … You’ll really learn a LOT of tips and tricks in Swing-Knitting™!
In order to understand this workshop, you must have done Swing-Knitting™ 1 to 3.
Part 1 of this workshop is about “First Aid” – how to cope with mistakes, irregularities and mishaps while knitting – including Karin Fischer’s excellent description how to save a fallen double stitch.
In part 2 we’ll do the Swingy Hitchhiker – a large crescent shawl, diagonally swing-knitted™, that can be bound in your back. When I chose this project I didn’t guess the least of all the advanced Swing-Knitting™ techniques it brings along!
When you’ve swing-knitted™ the Swingy Hichhiker along with me, you will have earned your “journeyman’s exam” – and you will be fit to do your own projects in Swing-Knitting™ technique!
