Two session class: 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, January 26 and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, February 9. There will be homework in between classes.
Tired of knitting solid colors and stripes? Want to master working in the round? Learn two skills in one class! In the first class, we will cover how to cast on and join in the round, knitting the ribbing, reading color work charts, and how to hold two colors at once for color work. In the second class, we will reconvene with any questions you have about working with two colors, and will work the decreases at the top of the hat. During the classes, we will discuss different color work and decreasing techniques.
