Newish Knitter KAL - February 7, 14 and 21
This class is VIRTUAL via Zoom.
Newish Knitter KAL - Wolkig by Martina Behm
Date(s): February 7, 14 and 21
Location: The comfort of your own location - this is a zoom class
Instructor: Liz Daly
Our Newish Knitter KAL is for knitters who have finished Knit101 and Knit 102 and are wondering what to knit next. All of these patterns are great places to practice your stitches and learn how to read patterns. This KAL is also for more experienced knitters who want to socialize with others while knitting a project where you can knit and chat at the same time.
In February we are going to knit the Wolkig cowl by Martina Behm. I saw this cowl in our Scarf Market and was amazed that such a facy, ruffly cowl could be so simple.
Because Valentine's Day is in February I am treating myself to some cashmere using 2 skeins of Lamb and Goat along with 24" (or smaller) US 6 circular needles. We are going to do a lot of decrease stitches so I would recommend using a sharper pointed needle.
There is no charge for this virtual get-together, however, we ask that you purchase yarn from the store for this project. When you purchase your yarn write in the comments section that you would like to be added to the KAL! Don't worry if you can't make all of the sessions. We'd love to have you when you can make it.
Supplies: • Approximately 400 yards of fingering weight yarn. We are suggesting Lamb and Goat •US 6 circular 24" or smaller or size appropriate for gauge •stitch markers
Homework: Download the pattern from Ravelry.
Prerequisites: Be comfortable knitting and purling
