June Program-from Tonya B., Vice President

At our May program we learned how to needle felt! Sylvia demo’d and explained how to do this interesting/fun technique and we made gnomes. A wonderful technique for making many new gifts and embellishments. Thank you Sylvia!

Our June program “Assistance with Fusion Knitting” is provided to us by Joan W. Fusion Knitting is defined by Mary W. Martin as: “a reversible colorwork technique where slipped stitches are placed on both sides of the fabric to create design elements. The design on one side of the fabric is mirrored on the back – in other words, the designs from each side are fused together.”

The lesson is going to assist those who have her Follow the Flow pattern. Because Joan will use a pattern of her own design, you can participate in the lesson even if you don’t have the original pattern. https://marywmartinknits.com/fusion-knitting-tutorials/ is a wonderful resource for this lesson.

Materials needed:

  • 2 circular needles (they don’t have to match)

  • 2 colors of the same yarn (will be referred to as “dark and light” about 10 yards of each color should be enough)

  • Cable needle

Homework:

  1. With dark yarn Cast On 16 stitches and join in the round, being careful not to twist.

  2. Put 10 stitches on Needle 1 and 6 stitches on Needle 2.

    1. Needle 1 is where we will be doing the pattern.

    2. Needle 2 gets the yarn to where it needs to be for the next round.

  3. Purl one round.

  4. Knit 4, pm, knit 2, pm, knit 4. Knit across Needle 2.

  5. Put a marker on “Side 1” so that you can always tell where you are.

  6. Setup Round 1: With Dark yarn Purl 3, Ktbl 1, sm, Purl 2, sm, ktbl 1, Purl 3.  Purl 6 on Needle 2.
