Portuguese-Style Knitting with Mary Jo Harris

  • 08/29/2017
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Olbrich Botanical Gardens

In Portuguese-style knitting the yarn is tensioned around a knitting pin on your shoulder or around your neck. Stitches are created by a flick of your thumb, making this an easy way to knit without stressing your hands or wrists. 

Join instructor Mary Jo Harris, a local knitting designer, author, and active member of the Madison (WI) Knitters’ Guild, and learn about the history and advantages of Portuguese Knitting, how to purl, knit, bind off, and increase/decrease using the Portuguese method. She will show you how to make a scarf using the Portuguese method and share resources with you. Portuguese Knitting Pin and instructions provided. 

Bring worsted-weight yarn (no novelty yarn) - one or two colors, either straight or circular needles in size appropriate for your yarn, and usual knitting accessories. Participants should know how to cast on, bind off, knit, and purl. Adults and youth (ages 12 and up with an adult); each participant pays the registration fee. 

Limited space; register early. To register, please call (608)246-4550.
Registration deadline: August 22
$49 per person
