Knitting is a universal activity that provides both stress relief and a useful product. Students can knit during class while still paying attention, and create beautiful gifts for friends, family, and charity. Experienced knitters can also knit while walking around or waiting in line, staying active during down time. Knitting is useful for all types of people, especially those who like to make things, express creativity, and keep busy.
Students will be required to select, read, and complete annotations on at least 3 articles or book chapters of their choice related to the cultural and creative aspects of knitting. Students may use one of the readings from our provided reading list below as one of the 3 required readings. An annotation worksheet will be provided to help students complete this assignment. These readings and annotations can be done anytime over the course of the semester, and students will turn their 3 completed annotations at the end of the DeCal.
The goal of this class is to enable students, by the end of the semester, to execute and design patterns, as well as to build a local knitting community in which to share new ideas and techniques. This course will cover the basic techniques, but encourages students to pursue their own personal interests within the craft and to explore the multitude of resources available locally and online. Our website is currently being updated, but will have up-to-date information soon.
