3 hours – 70€

Knit a stylish necklace while exploring playful colorwork and shaping techniques. Learn how to quickly pick up stitches, knit textured welts, and bravely conquer stripes and stranded knitting. Stephen will share his signeture shortcut row technique and favorite bind offs. Tasteful tassels and pretty pom poms will also be a serious topic of discussion. Follow a semi-circular necklace recipe or venture into your own necklace design.

Requirements: You should be able to cast on, bind off, knit and purl.

Materials (please bring):
– Small amounts of yarn from lace weight to chunky weight in a variety of colors and fibers.
– A variety of needle sizes AND crochet hooks.
– Metal or plastic chain (extra chains will be available to use)
– Please bring a crochet hook small enough to insert into the metal chain links.
– Spare crochet hooks will also be provided.

Colorplay the WestKnits Way – Vendredi 22 mai 2015 – 18h30 – 21h30
3 hours – 70€

This class is all about showing off beautiful yarns with simple techniques combined in clever ways. Techniques like stripes, slipped stitches, and holding yarns together will be explored and combined to create bold architectural fabrics. You will learn Stephen’s color joining method for stripes and the signature Westknits Shortcut Rows! Stephen will overwhelm your senses with a colorful array of Westknits designs while encouraging you to look at yarn in a new way.

Bring an array of colorful scrap yarn for swatching (varying yarn weights and fibers) and various needle sizes (4mm-10mm). Bring a few fine yarns, some chunkier options, and some fuzzy yarns like alpaca and mohair. Sparkly yarns are highly encouraged as well as some colors or yarns you don’t know what to do with.

Modular Magic Montage


Modular Magic (Nouveau cours !) – Samedi 23 mai 2015 – 18h30 – 21h30
3 hours – 70€

Come explore the magic of modern modular knitting with Stephen West!

In this 3 hour class, you will play with clever seamless knitting techniques and simple geometric shapes to build your own customized fabric. Stephen will guide you through some of his favorite shaping skills while you build and piece together your own fuzzy fiber puzzle. Stephen will also cover how to apply these fabric building concepts to stylish sweaters, shawls, hats, and more!

Bring a colorful array of yarns and needle sizes. Worsted weight wool yarns are recommended. Also bring any swatches or pieces of finished or unfinished knits that aren’t too precious to you (scarves, cowls, sweaters, etc…). We can play with picking up stitches from these old fabrics and add modular pockets, hoods, and collars to finished accessories and garments.

Student maximum: 15
Difficulty level: Intermediate

Materials (please bring):
– Worsted weight yarn in 10g or greater balls (at least 4 colors).Bring your other favorite yarns and colors!
