Cozy Cowl Intermediate Knitting Class with Kate Husband
January 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Learn to knit a cozy cowl!
This class will teach you how to make the perfect accessory for this time of year – to wear inside and out without any fuss. This class is for advanced beginner and intermediate knitters and includes two patterns so you can choose your difficulty level. Both patterns are fully reversible and knit in a heavy weight worsted yarn – perfect for a quicker project!
The course will be a series of three Friday afternoons from 2-4 pm, on January 3, 10 and 17 in the lovely Cottage Gallery at Twisted Fish.
To take this class, you must know how to knit and purl. For the advanced beginners, the Ridges Cowl will be a relatively uncomplicated and satisfying knit in the round. For the intermediate knitters, the Cocoon Cowl is a slightly more complicated knit which will provide the opportunity to learn a provisional cast-on, an interesting stitch pattern with a chart and how to graft stitches together. See pictures of the finished projects below!
This class is complimentary but space is limited and registration is required. Please contact the gallery at 231.264.0123 to reserve your spot.
Supplies: please purchase and bring with you to class.
Ridges Cowl: size 9 (5.5 mm) circular knitting needle, 24- 32 in long; 200 grams of heavy worsted weight yarn (ideally that can be knit at a 4 sts/in gauge, but 4.5 sts/in will work as well). Recommended yarns include: Malabrigo Worsted and Knit Picks City Tweed Aran/HW. Many people love a yarn that has some alpaca content for this project.
Cocoon Cowl: size 9 (5.5 mm) circular knitting needle (length does not matter as this project is knit flat); 2 skeins of either of the following yarns: Blue Sky Fibers – Hand Dyes Worsted (alpaca/merino) or Juniper Moon Farm – Fourteen (merino/cashmere).
