Fisher Lassie Pattern
When I first bought the Fisher Lassie pattern I was only intending to knit it for myself as my new winter coat. But as I read through it, it quickly became apparent there was a series of hand knitting lessons I could share with others. Thus I started the lesson plan list:
|long tail cast on
|right twist demo
|reading the pattern/preview
|inc 1 st frm edge why
|how to work new sts into pattern
|cast on sts for right front button band
|how to cast on at end of row
|what does work in pattern mean
|what is 1-row 4-st buttonhole?
fit check: row gauge off? changing length, need to adjust buttonhole placement; adjust sleeve shaping too.
|transfer to scrap yarn
|measure off ?
|p/u & knit @ shoulder off cast on edge (ie reason for long tail)
|joining sections in right order
|cast on @ underarm
|tricks for counting sts
|*mathing* sleeve construction; p/u ratio based on st/row gauge
|p/u along edge; p/u underarms (and avoid hole)
|collar: p/u along edge; in back nec; along edge
|weaving in ends
|sewing on buttons
And, now, the issue is how to convert that lesson plan list into something useable that everyone who is knitting the project can access. Blog posts? Videos? WP Courseware? All of the above? I’m going to give the brand new updated WP Courseware a go. I’ll post as I proceed.
