Trillium park (outdoor site)

Instructor: Eri Ishii

Spend two summer nights in a circle with other knitters discovering the joy of reading visual graphs that Japanese patterns offer, as well as learning the ins and outs (or fronts  and backs) of cabling!

Vancouver artist, Eri Ishii, is known as a painter but has also been knitting since she was five years old. Eri is a big fan of how Japanese patterns are written as a visual key to a pattern vs the North American general pattern. In this workshop, participants will knit up a hat designed by Mariko Mikuni that showcases 5 different cables as an exercise in understanding how to read Japanese knitting patterns.

There will be lots of time for questions, idea sharing, feedback, and support as you complete your project. 

Experience required: comfortable casting on/off and with knit and purl stitches.

A simpler version of the pattern will be offered for those with less confidence with needles.

Materials & Equipment:

Yarn and needles are not provided. 

Recommended yarn  – medium weight, 120 gms of worsted  yarn. Yardage: 90 yards per 50 grams. A light, uniform colour is recommended as it’s easier to see stitches.

Participants are welcome to bring along their dinner or personal snacks.
