Learn the Brioche Stitch! - $30
Saturday, Oct. 12 @ 2pm
You've been waiting patiently for us to offer this class again, and now's the time! We know you're tempted by the many gorgeous brioche patterns...but do you feel overwhelmed by trying to figure it out on your own? Brioche stitch creates a richly textured, double-sided fabric that is unlike any other. In this class we will become "fluent" in brioche as we knit a reversible cowl.
* We will knit in the round--because in brioche, that's the simplest way to start.
* We will use two colors--because in brioche, it is easier to identify the stitches that way.
Whether you're new to brioche or have tried it before, you'll learn tons in this class. (1-part class, materials additional)
Materials: Two colors in bulky-weight (with high contrast), US11-16" circular needle, stitch markers, pattern provided in class.
Butterfly Cowl - $30
Saturday, Oct. 19 @ 2pm
Have you been enticed by the Butterfly/Papillon Shawl, but feel a bit overwhelmed by it? Make the Butterfly Cowl instead! It's an over-the-head cowl pattern with a classic "V" shape--designed as a little sampler of the larger shawl. Dip your toes into the techniques of short rows to create the shapes with both
yarnover increases and
make-one increases. (1-part class, materials additional)
Materials: Pattern via Ravelry, US4-24" circular needle, 100 yards of fingering weight for main color, 80 yards of fingering weight for contrast color, scissors, removable stitch markers, and tapestry needle.
