Welted Fingerless Gloves in Shibui Baby Alpaca

Welted Fingerless Gloves in Shibui Baby Alpaca

Mittens and fingerless gloves are perfect knitting for the approaching holiday season. They are quick to knit. The choice of yarn makes for a distinctive and unique gift – my personal favorite for teachers. Kiko has chosen two Churchmouse designs for this class - Colorwork Cuffs & Mittens and Welted Fingerless Glove. All students will learn to knit in the round on double pointed needles. Those selecting the Colorwork Cuffs & Mittens pattern will learn to follow a color chart.

Pair this class with Hickory’s early October workshop Knitting in (Small) Circles to practice the techniques covered!

Learn to Knit Lace Scarf (starts Sept 30)

Three 2-hour classes; $35 + tax & supplies (each session)

Sign up for one or both sessions; to skip to “B”, you should be comfortable working yarnovers and directional decreases, and reading charts.

Learn To Knit Lace Scarf 1024

Knitted lace patterns are mostly simple repetitions of increase and decrease stitches (yarnover/k2tog), easily mastered by knitters at any level – so if you can cast on and make a knit or purl stitch, you are ready for lace. Kiko has designed a lace primer that starts with single eyelets and gradually introduces more complex motifs. You will also find out how easy it can be to follow charts.

This fall, we are offering the course in 3 + 3 segments, so you have the option of taking just an intro taste with session A or continuing on for more involved designs in session B. A complete scarf can be made from either of the sessions (and of course with both) since the sampler set-up allows you to mix-n-match the components you wish to work with.

We recommend a smooth fingering weight yarn with wool content (450 yds or more) and a set of straight or circular needles in a size that gives you a relaxed but even stockinette stitch (usually around US4 depending on the yarn, however go up 1 size if in doubt). Scarf pattern is included with the class, and is a series of written and charted directions handed out at each meeting.

Mosaic Knit Cowl or Hat (starts Nov 18)

Two 2-hour classes; $30 + tax & supplies

Mosaic Cowl

In need of a quick, super easy yet impressive-looking gift for someone? Consider this slipstitch color work cowl or hat. Adapted from Barbara Walker’s “mosaic” technique, these designs may look complicated but all you need to know are: cast-on, knit and purl stitch, and bind-off. Only one color yarn at a time gets worked – no “stranding” to worry about as in Fair Isle knitting – and every other round is a straight repeat of the previous, so motifs knit up very quickly. The hat features an optional i-cord cast-on and Latvian braid, for those interested (or can spare the time…) in decorative details.

Meknes_medium2

Meknès

For the cowl, any DK to light worsted yarn in 2 or 3 contrasting colors works beautifully. The hat is more gauge-specific and requires a sock/sport-weight yarn in 2 contrasting colors (The samples displayed in store are in Madelinetosh Sport). The patterns are available as hard copy or Ravelry downloads (pattern names: Mosaic Cowl and Meknès).
