Knit One Below!

(k1b) Knit One Below

One of the best parts of being a Camellia City Stockinette is the camaraderie of fabulous knitters. Our guild is filled with many experienced and talented knitters eager to share their knitting knowledge. One such knitter is Sandra Benward.

Stockinette Teacher Sandra Benward

Sandra was the instructor for (K1B) Knit One Below at our August Tuesday Night Program. Sandra has mastered the (K1B) stitch and shared her knowledge with a classroom full of eager Stockinette knitters.

Sandi helping out Pat P.

Sandi ventured around the classroom and made sure that all Stockinettes new and experienced understood the (K1B) stitch. This unique stitch creates columns of color in your knitting.

Stockinette Pat P. said "she really had a good time at the August meeting and this was her first Stockinette program and she loved it."

The Stockinettes in Deep Concentration!

Each Stockinette who attended the workshop received a free Inside-Outside Scarf pattern from the book Knit One Below by Elise Duvekot. You can also check out the book Knit One Below from our lending library!

An added bonus came from a Stockinette that we don't see much these days because she does her knitting on the high seas. Yes that would be, our very own, Terry Morris who is also known as The Sailing Knitter. Terry generously supplied the class attendees with a scarf, hat and fingerless glove pattern for the (K1B) stitch. Thank you Terry!

Sandi helping Marie as Lisa knits on!

Every Stockinette that attended was thrilled to learn this new stitch. Stockinette Lisa S. said "I'm really glad I came. It's a great technique and I can't wait to make a scarf!"

Thank you to Camellia City Stockinettes Sandra and Terry for contributing to this program's success.

We hope to see you at next month's Tuesday Night Program with another fabulous Stockinette knitter/teacher...Beth Callahan. Beth will be teaching us how to make a felted fall Cornucopia with felted corn, etc. Talk about knitting fun for fall!


  1. Sounds like a great program night! It'll be cool to see what projects a created from it. I'm sorry I couldn't be there. Maybe some kind soul will take pity on me and demonstrate the technique at a later date...

  2. Sandi - what a great workshop! I continue to improve my knitting skills by participating in the guild classes and challenges. Thanks, Stockinettes!
