Taught By: Tracey Jain

This course on advanced machine knitting is centered on community building through craft and making. Students develop their creativity and vision while building knowledge of contemporary industry knitwear practices. Through projects and discussion, students extend textile and technology skills that support their individual design identities and philosophies. This course challenges students to question systems of production as they relate to hand-crafted textile processes. Students engage in conversations, collaborative thinking, problem solving, peer-to-peer learning, and advancing social justice through community engagement. Students gain knowledge of and expertise in technical aspects of basic knitting like casting on, casting off, ribs, tucks, and slip stitches, using Dubied machines. Students further their graduate-level research and 3D development skills, such as shaping, by learning advanced knit structures, construction techniques, and applications – such as plaiting and using different needle setups for knit construction.
