This amazing lacy crocheted wrap looks like a very difficult pattern, but in fact it is for the advanced beginner. The pattern is made up of simple crochet stitches that repeat many times in different orders.  

In this three part workshop, you'll learn chart/pattern reading at its finest. You'll also learn how to keep track of your progress as well as new and easily learned stitches.  Jan will also give you hints for blocking this piece to perfection.

Leftie Workshop

One Saturday, June 24th from 1pm-4pm  $20.00

Instructor:  Cindy

Leftovers. Everyone has them, everyone hoards them – especially when they are some precious hand-dyed yarn that is not always in stock.Well, now their time has come: Leftie is an asymmetrical shawlette that was designed to show off your favorite little leftovers.The stripes will swirl around your neck in a very flattering way, and the cute tiny leaves are the perfect way to make your favorite colors shine (they are created by just a few short rows). It‘s all garter stitch, so the knitting is all fun and relaxing. There are quite a couple of ends to weave in, but that‘s no problem, right?

You start with just three stitches, adding wider and wider rows and thereby forming a long and narrow triangle.The little leaves in contrast colors are formed by short rows that are explained in the pattern.This pattern, as the other triangular shawls I have designed, is very flexible: You can use any amount of yarn and end up with a small neckerchief, a small or bigger shawlette

Sign up for this one day workshop and learn the skills needed to make this great piece.  

So Faded Sweater

Three Sundays:  May 21st 1:30-3:30pm, May 28th & June 11th 1:30- 4:30pm  $60.00*

Instructor:  Elena Homans

"So Faded" sweater designed by Andrea Mowry sums up an ideal raglan pullover.  It's worked from the top down, completely seamless, and has a little bit of texture to make it fit into a more modern wardrobe.  It is an easy and satisfying knit, making it a great first garment if you are a beginner.  A slightly different approach to raglan and all possible color variations make it interesting for an experienced knitter as well.  Color "melting" technique will certainly add fun to the process. Since its worked  from the top down, you can easily adjust the length of the sleeves and the body to fit your personal style.  Come and get inspired by all the gorgeous yarns we can offer and the sweater will practically jump on your needles and pretty much knit itself!

In this workshop you'll learn top down raglan construction, shaping increases & decreases, color fading "melting" technique, knitting in the round, picking up stitches, invisible join of a new color yarn, strategies for keeping track of knitting progress.

Prerequisites:  confident knitting.
