Embroidery on Knitting: Monograms


Are you looking for a way to personalize your knitting? How about by applying lettering?

Monograms, messages, mottos and more are possible using this different approach. The technique can be applied to up cycle your stockinette pieces, whether they be knit by hand or sourced from your closet. It’s a wonderful way to take a simple staple and make it truly reflect your personality!

During the class, we will stitch the “blue” into a swatch. The selection of this word is not just an intentional homage to our host for the session, but also a perfect pick to practice different approaches to applying lettering to knitwear. As we stitch these letters together, we will talk about how to apply the technique to your knits, covering topics like, yarn choice, gauge, centering, tips to follow and pitfalls to avoid. By the end of the class, you will look at stockinette as a perfect canvas to customize with lettering!

Materials required:

  • Approximately 20 grams of worsted weight yarn in a light color and with a high twist

  • US 5 (3.75 mm) needles


  • Yarn and needle to get a gauge of 27 sts and 36 rows / 4 in (10 cm)

  • Approximately 10 grams of sport or fingering weight high twist contrast yarn for embroidery.

  • Darning needle

  • Removable stitch markers

  • Blocking mat and pins (optional)

    Upon registration you will receive an email with instructions to knit a small swatch, which will be your canvas to embroider during class. Gauge will matter for this swatch. Please strive to reach 6.5 sts/inch or tighter. We are looking for a rather taut, dense fabric for a canvas for this class.

    Alternatively, you can purchase a kit for the class by selecting the class + kit option in the drop down menu below. Please add your shipping address if it is different from your billing address in the notes field.
