Darning and Mending Workshop

Darning and Mending Workshop

Instructor:

Melissa Caines

Class Description:

Join us for a fun evening of darning and mending. In this 2 hour workshop, we will learn how to mend holes and weak points in our knitting. We will cover basic darning, swiss darning (a.k.a. duplicate stitch) and how to reknit and graft a patch onto our knitting.

Cost:

$90 includes Canadian made darning egg, darning needles and yarn for darning

Please call (604-874-9665) or stop by the shop to register.

Materials:

Bring any store-bought or hand knit socks with holes or weak points, as well as other knitting you may have questions about!

Homework Swatch: Use 5 mm needles (or 4 mm needles for Chickadee yarn) and a light colour of Quince and Co. Lark or Quince and Co. Chickadee- please do not substitute yarn, as some substitutions will be too difficult to work with.

Stockinette Stitch Swatch

Cast on 40 stitches.

Row 1: Knit

Row 2: Purl

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until your swatch is 5-6" long. Bind off.

Please also bring a set of double-pointed needles with you to class in a size (or two) down from the needles you used to knit your swatch. (4 or 4.5 mm for those knitting their swatches in Lark and 3.75 or 3.5 mm for those using chickadee.)
