Roam Cowl

Two 2-hour classes; $35 + tax & supplies

Make this easy and fun cowl from the 2012 special issue of Knitscene Accessories with Dawn.  In class you will learn Cat Bordhi’s innovative moebius cast on and a stretchy bind-off. You can also personalize your reversible infinity scarf with different yarn choices. The store sample has a bit of bling with a metallic sparkly yarn integrated into the simple lace pattern. A rich solid color yarn will show off the stitch definition. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

Color Play Blanket (starts Dec 1)

This is a wonderfully easy and fun blanket to make.  First pick some favorite colors in a soft yarn: ours is Madelinetosh Chunky superwash merino. Then we’ll make the squares on the diagonal and sew them together with a simple invisible seam.  You can decide the size easily with squares or rectangles, ours is 2×2 for a small baby blanket – you could easily make a 3×3, 3×4, 4×4…

This class is open to beginning knitters and advanced beginners.
