Workshop: Tectonic by Emily Greene Knits

6:30 pm – 8:30 pm Wednesdays: September 23rd, October 7th & 21st, November 4th & 18th.

Tectonic puts a new spin on how we think of cozy. Knit from seamlessly from the top down, this raglan pullover has a relaxed fit through the body and sleeves with a classic crew neckline.

Per the designer, Emily Green, “Tectonic’s statement sleeves are cleverly shaped to create a structured, three-dimensional silhouette. Both body and sleeves feature traveling diagonal columns of stockinette stitch, which flow seamlessly into the ribbed cuffs and modern split hem. Finish off your Tectonic with a polished neckband of folded stockinette (as shown), or with a simple ribbed band.”

Pam Grushkin will guide you through the process of knitting Tectonic with its interesting design elements and style options. We will cover German short rows, the tubular bind off, and picking up stitches.

To make the most of class time, please knit a swatch and discuss it with the teacher before class, so she can make needle adjustments as needed.

Taught by Pam Grushkin:  I love to share my passion for knitting and crochet through teaching and designing.  My designs have been published in Vogue Knitting, Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn, One + One Hat, One + One Wraps, Cowls, & Capelets, Tahki Stacy Charles and independently as Pam Grushkin Designs. In 2004 I began to work at Knit Together in Stamford, CT.  It was there that I created Stitch and Chat. A class dedicated to supporting knitters and crocheters.  Since then I have built a rich curriculum of classes that range from beginner to intermediate.
