Have fun with modular knitting

One day modular knitting creative workshop

Join knitwear designer Nicki Merrall at Hope & Elvis for here Modular Knitting creative workshop.

Modular knitting (also known as mitred or domino knitting) is a fun technique in which you knit one module (or shape) at a time. Having knitted the first module, you pick up stitches from the previous module, so that each piece is joined as it is knitted. Nicki will show you how to knit a single mitred square in garter stitch, then how to pick up stitches and knit additional squares. The fun starts when you knit stripes; the decreases cause the stripes to form a corner rather than straight lines. Nicki will give you some helpful tips for choosing colours, as well as working in stripes.
