YARNIVAL Intro to Fusion Knitting

All YARNIVAL classes are taught via Zoom, are recorded, and students have access to the recording for 30 days.

Fusion Knitting is a reversible colourwork technique. Design elements are created with slipped stitches on both sides of the fabric. The motif on one side of the fabric is mirrored on the other side.

In this class, we will work a small swatch in the round to practice the most common stitches and cables. Emphasis will be on reading your knitting and understanding what happens with each kind of stitch. You
will learn the properties of Fusion Knit fabric and why the technique works.

There will be homework (the cast on & bottom edge).

Instructor: Mary Martin
Instructor Bio: Mary Martin is a knitwear designer based in Toronto, Canada, creating innovative fabrics. She has pioneered two reversible techniques: Fission Knitting and Fusion Knitting and is developing Woven Knitting. She draws on her engineering background as she “builds” her fabric. Her computer experience was applied to creating flexible knitting notation to describe her unique use of cables. When Mary designs it feels surprisingly like her work building financial structures on Wall Street. Mary started designing when she was knitting chemo caps for a friend with breast cancer. She wanted to make a reversible hat for her friend but was unable to. This sparked her curiosity about whether it was possible to place cabled motifs on both sides of the fabric. Her designs reflect what she has learned about creating reversible fabrics.
