20151215_122305_resized_1Why Are We Knitting?  We are knitting because this is another basic structure of textiles.  In order to work well with man-made textiles, it is best of understand the construction of those materials.  Plus, we are learning a skill which you can further develop into a means of producing functional attire.

Goals of the Assignment: Students will create a sampler practicing the knitting techniques of casting on, knitting, changing color, and binding off. Students will then choose the materials to incorporate into their own final knitting, a scarf. The scarf will demonstrate a comprehension of knitting techniques and showcase an understanding of combining colors and textures.
