A Taste of Sequence Knitting with Cecelia Campochiaro
Saturday, January 28th from 10am-Noon Eastern
Sequence knitting is an addictive way of creating all-over textured fabrics. In this class we’ll learn how this simple approach to hand knitting leads to an endless variety of interesting fabrics. We’ll also swatch a few reversible sequence knitting fabrics to get a feel for how it works. Any of these would be ideal for a scarf, shawl, or blanket—anytime reversibility is priority. (If you’ve taken an introduction to sequence knitting with Cecelia before, much of this will be review, but the swatch is new and will have a couple twists and turns).
Level: advanced beginner and beyond.
Materials: 1) Two small balls of smooth solid-color yarn in the same base and different colors; 2) Appropriate needles for your yarn; 3) Basic knitting supplies.
Cecelia Campochiaro appeared on the knitting scene in 2015 with her debut book, Sequence Knitting. Knitting was a causal pastime until she had an ah-ha moment in 2010 and realized that interesting textured fabrics could be created by the simple repetition of a sequence of stitches. This idea evolved and led to her writing Sequence Knitting, which is a reference book about this mindful approach to knitting.
In the years since Sequence Knitting debuted, she has continued to develop new ideas in knitting. Sequence Knitting is about texture, and her new book, Making Marls, is about color. In Making Marls, the technique of working multiple strands together as one is explored as a way to create colorwork in handknitting.
Cecelia lives in Silicon Valley, where for many years she developed specialized microscopes used in computer chip manufacturing. Textiles, photography and the arts have been a lifelong passion running in parallel with her technical life. In high school and college even though her main studies were in the sciences, she also studied drawing, printmaking, ceramics, and photography.
Not only is she interested in the arts and knitting, but also in books. Books have been the primary mechanism for knowledge transfer for over a thousand years. One of her missions is to honor that tradition and create books that are both informative, and also beautiful objects in and of themselves. Makers love beautiful things, and Cecelia feels strongly that books should be as lovely as tools and yarns. Today she is fully dedicated to the fiber world and “unventing” new ways to make amazing knit fabrics.
