Mosaic-Inspired and Slip Stitch Knitting with Simone Kereit

60.00

Sunday, March 18th, 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Join guest teacher and designer Simone Kereit for this special workshop!

This class will introduce you to working with 2 colors using a variety of slip stitch and mosaic-inspired patterns, using Simone's Hedgerow Jam Cowl pattern. By using only 1 color per row, this is a wonderful way to knit colorwork patterns without using fair isle technique.

During class, you will knit a miniature version of the cowl, practicing all the techniques involved. Time permitting, you will then cast on for the full-sized cowl.

Techniques covered:

  • 3 different mosaic/slip stitch techniques
  • how to make a 1-row buttonhole
  • picking up stitches along finished edges
  • fun methods for attaching buttons

Supplies:

  • Copy of Hedgerow Jam pattern (provided with sign up cost)
  • scrap smooth worsted weight yarn in 2 colors for sampler
  • 2 skeins of Malabrigo Rios in 2 colors for full sized cowl
  • US7 and US10 circular needles in 24" length
  • Darning needles
  • 3 buttons, approx 7/8" to 1" in diameter

Cancellation policy: No cancellations are available for this workshop after March 10th, 2018. This is because Simone is a traveling from out of state for this workshop.
