Purchase your class, then I will receive a notice and contact you to schedule a convenient day and time and provide you instructions for how to prepare. - James

Instead of hiding floats on the wrong side of your work, showcase them on the right side. Learn how to use multi-stitch floats to create beautiful graphic designs and distinctive stitch patterns in one or two colors. This is a simple way to add interest to existing patterns and a fun approach to creating your own designs for both accessories and garments.

  • The class will be conducted in a Zoom session.
  • You will be emailed written instructions and a chart.

Testimonials

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
