Winter Classes  

Mosiac Cowl Class - Class Dates April 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th from 6-8pm

$60 Class Fee

Do you love the beautiful colors and designs of Fair Isle knitting but fear working with two colors at the same time?  Mosaic knitting is a simple technique, for knitting color patterns in your work using just knit, purl and slip stitches. You can choose to design your own cowl or get assistance to knit a pattern of your choosing. If you are feeling timid about designing you own cowl here are five free Ravelry patterns to choose from: <a href="https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#remembered=624525%7C687048%7C785139%7C769060%7C553218&amp;sort=best&amp;view=captioned_thumbs">https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#remembered=624525%7C687048%7C785139%7C769060%7C553218&amp;sort=best&amp;view=captioned_thumbs</a> </div> <div dir="ltr"> 

Or if are feeling adventurous and want to design your own here is link to some inspirational stitch patterns from the Barbara Walker collection:  <a href="https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/mosaic-knitting/projects?page=1&amp;status=finished">https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/sources/mosaic-knitting/projects?page=1&amp;status=finished</a></div> <div dir="ltr">

You choose the yarn weight and needle size you want to use and we will work together in class to create your own unique project. My suggestions are colors with a stark contrast in value and a 24" long circular needle size appropriate to the yarn weight, i.e the needle size recommended on the ball band. <br clear="all" /> <div><br /></div> <div>

On The Beach by Isabel Kraemer Sweater KAL - Thursdays - March 7th, 14th, March 28th, April 11th  6pm-8pm

Cost: $60.00, 4 sessions

Instructor: Cathy

Skill Level: Advanced/Adventurous beginner - intermediate

If you are like me, you hate sewing seams. I find that the raglan sleeve style of most top-down sweaters are unflattering in that they do not define your shoulders, giving the impression of slumped shoulders and poor posture. The Contiguous Shoulder method gives the look of a set in sleeve while knitting top down seamless sweaters.  

In this knit along, we will be working from a basic V-neck sweater pattern, On The Beach by Isabell Kraemer. I will be teaching you how to modify the neckline, changes you can make for a better fit, and how to add decorative touches such as textured stitches or decorative borders around the neckline.   

Pattern https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/on-the-beach-6

 Homework: work a swatch with your chosen yarn and needles.   

Materials:  as outlined in the pattern. Bring your favorite fitting sweater to help obtain your perfect measurements for a perfect fit.
