Fisher Lassie Lesson Plans

Fisher Lassie Pattern

When I first bought the Fisher Lassie pattern I was only intending to knit it for myself as my new winter coat. But as I read through it, it quickly became apparent there was a series of hand knitting lessons I could share with others. Thus I started the lesson plan list:

Construction discussion
changing size
long tail cast on
reading chart
remembering M1L/M1R
right twist demo
reading the pattern/preview
inc 1 st frm edge why
how to work new sts into pattern
cast on sts for right front button band
how to cast on at end of row
what does work in pattern mean
what is 1-row 4-st buttonhole?
fit check: row gauge off? changing length, need to adjust buttonhole placement; adjust sleeve shaping too.
transfer to scrap yarn
measure off ?
p/u & knit @ shoulder off cast on edge (ie reason for long tail)
joining sections in right order
cast on @ underarm
tricks for counting sts
*mathing* sleeve construction; p/u ratio based on st/row gauge
p/u along edge; p/u underarms (and avoid hole)
magic loop
collar: p/u along edge; in back nec; along edge
w&t
BO loosely
slip stitch?
weaving in ends
sewing on buttons

Delivery Medium

And, now, the issue is how to convert that lesson plan list into something useable that everyone who is knitting the project can access. Blog posts? Videos? WP Courseware? All of the above? I’m going to give the brand new updated WP Courseware a go. I’ll post as I proceed.

Buying the Project

No, its not too late to buy into the project. Just go to the Knitting Today Store and choose your color and size. Also, if you want a different Superwash color, we can special order that. Just let me know. Link: Buy Fisher Lassie Kit.
