Part I:  Simple Repairs

Where is the yarn going?
Duplicate stitch
Repairing pulls
Repairing a single strand break in stockinette stitch: knit side, purl side.
Bring to Class - a knit swatch

Use worsted weight yarn in a light color for your learning swatch.  This is so you can see what you are doing.  Knit on needle size 6, 7 or 8.  If you are a tight knitter, use 8’s.  Bring a small amount of dark colored yarn.
Cast on 30 stitches with the light colored yarn.  Garter stitch (knit every row) 4 rows to stabilize the edge.  Then change to stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row) and knit about 4 inches.  Bind off loosely. 

Part II: Darning Knitted Fabric: for Large Holes

Stabilizing the edges of the hole.
Setting up a grid along the length of the fabric
Stabilizing the sides
Weaving in new fabric
Bring to Class:  The swatch you used for the first class OR a knitted garment that needs darning with, if possible, matching yarn OR both.
