“I do love
knitting patterns.”

Final Exam

For your final, you need to knit something that combines at least two of the different techniques covered in the lessons: cables, lace, in-the-round, and colorwork. The what is left up to you, based on what sort of item you want to make. To get you started on ideas, well, I've given you a lot of suggestions over the course of the term, and some of them do indeed use two techniques at once. So feel free to use those as a starting place. Remember, too, if you've got a different idea, or just need help finding something you like, send us an email for approval or advice.

Part 1

Take a picture of your finished item and send it — as an attachment or a link, your choice — to [email protected], using the subject Knitwear Final, Part 1 - ab123 (where ab123 is your HOL ID).

Due January 15th. Worth 30 points.

Part 2

Take a picture of your finished item in use — being worn, being used in some fashion, or just a really interesting, creative shot. Have fun with it. Send the picture (attachment or link) along with your main assignment to [email protected]. You can send it with the main assignment or on its own; if you send it separately, use the subject Knitwear Final, Part 2 - ab123 (where ab123 is your HOL ID).

Due January 15th. Worth 30 points.

Part 3

Write at least 250 words about your experience knitting this project. Here are some questions to get you thinking about things you can write about: Who did you knit it for? What drew you to this pattern? Have you tried these two techniques together before? Was it smooth sailing from start to finish, or did you have trouble along the way? If you were to knit this project again, would you do anything differently? Are you satisfied with the result?

Send it to [email protected]. You can send it with the main assignment or on its own; if you send it separately, use the subject Knitwear Final, Part 3 - ab123 (where ab123 is your HOL ID).

Due January 15th. Worth 30 points.
