Stacked Stitches: Knitting in Wild Color
01: Intro to Stacked Stitches
Meet Xandy and begin class with a discussion of the basic techniques and concepts of stacked stitch knitting. Then go over the materials you'll need for your project, a stacked stitches scarf.
02: The Increase
Next, see how to make increases as Xandy introduces the Knit, Yarn Over, Knit (KYOK) stitch. Notice the holes that are naturally created through increasing and discover a few ways to rein them in.
03: The Decrease
Then, learn all about decreases, specifically the Knit 5 Together stitch. Follow along as Xandy demonstrates many of the different ways you can create this complex decrease.
04: Combining Increases & Decreases
Now, work increases and decreases together to create a puzzle piece swatch. Take a close look at your swatch to see if there's anything that's not quite right, and learn how to make fixes!
05: Stacked Scarf Pattern
In this lesson, Xandy introduces the stacked stitch scarf pattern and talks about putting together all the skills you've learned. She also discusses some fun ways to use color in stacked stitches.
06: Next Steps
Finally, build on what you've learned to construct your own motifs. Xandy shows you how to use stitch stacks to create shaping outside of the stacks. Afterwards, she shares her own design process and some project show-and-tell. Plus, find out how she developed her famous Fox Paws pattern!
