Granting certificates at Breipunt in Stiphout/Helmond december 2016

Starting point
Main thread in this course is the knitting stitch. In the first lesson the stitch will be examined and discussed. To come to a better insight in how a stitch determines what the knitting will look like, we will discuss Western versus Eastern knitting, twisted stitches, Combination Knitting and knitting methods with the yarn over the left or the right finger or around the neck.
In the lessons to follow we will constantly return to the basis of knitting: the stitch. This way a better insight is gained in the techniques and the characteristics of knitting. Because in the lessons the emphasis is on the basic principles of knitting the students will understand techniques faster and will be able to solve knitting problems better.

Contents of the course
Good knitting and finishing techniques make the difference between ‘handmade’ and ‘real handcraft’. In this course you will learn the finer details of hand knitting, so your knittings will look like real handcraft. We will discuss knitting methods, casting on, casting of, finishing techniques, increasing and decreasing, lace knitting, short rows, cable techniques, possibilities and limitations of material and tools and the use of patterns in other languages.
