Don't Be A Square, Learn to Knit, Afghan Knit-Along, Well Plaid
Block two of our month of plaid! Where our last block used stripes raised above the fabric of the square, Block Fourteen “Well Plaid” creates lines of color flush with the rest of the square.
Amy Gunderson achieves this by working one vertical stitch in the row in reverse stockinette, then applying the contrasting color to the purled stitch using a crochet hook. It’s rather ingenious. The video shows how it’s achieved. -

Math for Knitters
I know, you may have considered not reading past the word “math”. Sure, you may have wondered what a rational person would need to calculate how many cars were on the train (hint: a lot). But really, when you are doing math so you can knit a beautiful shawl or so that perfect sweater will also fit perfectly, math is fun. Trust me!
Don’t be afraid of knitting math! Be afraid of mountain lions, if you must. But knitting math will make you feel strong, confident, and you will be able to impress your friends.
We will cover the basics you will need for any pattern, move on to more specific types of knitting, and answer any questions you might have. Bring and pencil, paper, and a calculator. And math jokes. That’s the only thing we will laugh at in this class.
