Description ~ Advanced Repair

Basic repair is something most knitters can handle - dropped stitches, backing up, ripping back, etc. But what about when it isn't plain knitting? Picking up stitches in pattern can be quite the challenge, backing out when the stitches change places, or discovering where you are so you can pick up the pattern and go forward again are all much more advanced. We will start with basic texture, move on into cables, lace and end with brioche. You do not need to be an expert to attempt this, but this is one of the skills you will need to get to that expert level.
