Series I: Building Texture
This six part online workshop series is focused on learning new stitch techniques and patterns to build your texture repertoire.

Lesson 1: Butterfly Stitch
The butterfly stitch creates a beautifully simple, yet textured fabric. In this lesson, you will learn how to create a pattern with slip stitches, wrong side wraps, and picking up wraps with a knit stitch.
This pattern is great for decorative accents on any stockinette pattern. You can use it to dress up a plain sweater pattern, hats or mittens.
Lesson 2: Scrunch Stitch
The scrunch stitch creates a reversible bouncy and squishy texture. Learn how to drop stitches and pick up your dropped stitches for a squishy ribbing.
Because this pattern is a rib stitch, you can use it for cuffs on a sweater, or decorative edges on a hat. It’s reversible and warm which makes it a great alternative to the traditional rib stitch.
