Statement Knits: Knit Your Own Jewelry
This class combines a creative workshop with a comprehensive overview of all of Sosu’s favorite knitting techniques. Knit a stylish statement necklace, sophisticated choker, simple bracelet or fun earrings, while exploring simple colorwork and shaping techniques (increases/decreases, short-rows), i-cord seams, adding pom-poms and fringe and transforming the knit creations into jewelry, using basic jewelry-making supplies.
Yarn, embroidery thread, reflective and metallic thread, beads, chains and even wire can be used, and knitters are encouraged to let their imagination run wild and create their own one-of-a-kind designs or follow the necklace and earring patterns provided.
Materials: Small amounts of yarn or other thread/string/wire and short circular needles or DPNs (in a size that will get you a tight gauge with the yarn you’re bringing), stitch markers. Basic jewelry making supplies will be provided, but if you want to use something specific (beads, buttons, chains, tassels, embellishments), please bring it along.
