Fair Isle Basics
Sundays, August 4th and Sunday August 11th, 10:30am – 12:30pm — $65
Stranded and Fair Isle knitting are hot hot
hot right now and we’ve got the perfect class to get you started. After
knitting a hat brim before class, Darrin will get you started on our easy tam
pattern, teaching you how to read a color chart and managing two strands of
yarn at once. You’ll continue to knit at home between parts 1 and 2, and in
week 2 of class you’ll learn how to work decreases in a color pattern to
achieve the beautiful star motif on the top of the hat.
Required skills – cast on, knit, purl, and bind off comfortably; have a solid understanding of basic increases and decreases.
Homework is required for this class!
Magic Loop and Double Pointed Needles skill builder sessions
Thursday, August 15th, 6-7pm (magic loop), and 7-8pm (DPNs) — $25 each
Want to learn the magic behind magic loop?
Need help wrestling with those double pointed needles? These one-hour skill
builder sessions are designed to give you an introduction to the technique of
your choice, with enough time to practice in class and start to get comfortable
with your knitting. Magic loop uses an extra-long circular needle to
knit small circumferences in the round, where double pointed needles
(DPNs for short) are the classic method of using a set of short needles to knit
socks, sleeves, wristers, or hats.
Required skills – cast on, knit, purl, bind off without supervision. Previous knitting in the round experience is recommended for the Magic Loop workshop.
Crocheting in the Round
Thursday, August 22nd, 6 – 8:30pm — $60
Ready to crochet something other than a
rectangle? Then this is the workshop for you! Students who have taken our
Crochet 2 class (or have equivalent skills) will be ready to learn how to start
crocheting in circles, either from the bottom-up or top-down. Use this method
for hats, bags, baby booties, amugurumi, and even blankets!
Required skills – chain, single crochet, and have a solid understanding of the holes in those stitches and a chain space.
