What You’ll Learn

Continuous Cables with Amanda Scheuzger
Continuous cables seem to grow magically out of nowhere in knitted fabric to twist and twirl in intricate knotted shapes before they disappear back into the fabric. These special cables feature a closed-loop design and can be used to create Celtic knot inspired motifs or cables that run horizontal to the direction of the knitting. This class will cover how to work the increases and decreases needed to create these unique designs and how to read these cable charts.

Length: 3 hours

Skill Level: Intermediate with a lot of cable experience.

Homework: Using a light or medium solid color DK or worsted weight yarn and appropriate size needles, begin two swatches:

  • Swatch 1: CO 31 sts. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) for about 1 inch, then work 6 rows of reverse stockinette stitch (purl on right side rows, knit on wrong side rows), ending with a wrong side row. Place sts on a holder.
  • Swatch 2: Work as swatch 1, leaving sts on needles.

Supplies needed: Homework swatches with yarn attached, needles used to knit swatches, cable needle (if you have one).

Sweater Construction with Kristen TenDyke
Did you ever notice that the way a sweater is constructed can vary greatly from pattern to pattern? Some are knit top-down, while others are bottom-up. Some have set-in sleeves, while others are drop, modified drop, yoke or raglan. Maybe this is confusing, or you’ve never even heard these terms before. Kristen TenDyke will explain the differences between different types of sweater construction, and walk you through how to knit each type. You’ll leave with a bunch of tiny sweaters, and the confidence to knit one full-size!

Length: 3 hours

Skill Level: Intermediate to advanced

About Good Karma Farm

Good Karma Farm began in 2004 in Kingfield Maine when we brought home four alpacas and a llama. Since then we’ve added a small flock of registered Icelandic sheep, and moved the whole kit and caboodle from the mountains to the coast in Belfast Maine. Our goals with our animals have remained consistent- to raise happy, healthy animals with the right kind of fiber for the best yarn. Good Karma Farm has ample pasture, state of the art fencing, and big comfortable barns for the alpacas and sheep. When you visit our farm we invite you right into the barn or pasture with the animals so that you can see what alpacas and Icelandics are like, up close and personal!
