Learn (or brush up on) stranded two-color knitting, and make some quick, fun holiday decorations or last-minute gifts! Don't celebrate Christmas or want ornaments? This is also a great way to make a soft toy for small children.
Date: Saturday, December 7th from 2:00 - 5:00
Course fee: $45 for 3 hours of instruction.
Yarn: Any smooth wool, wool-blend, or acrylic yarn will work. You need at least 2 highly contrasting colors in the same weight. This is a great project for using up small leftover balls of yarn from other projects. Sport, DK or worsted weight is best.
Needles: Appropriate needles for your favorite method for knitting in the round - DPNs (set of 5 needles), 2 circulars ( length 16” or 24” ), or 1 circular needle for Magic Loop (at least 32” long).
Choose a needle size that lets you get a tight density on your stitches – you don’t want the stuffing peeking out through your knitting.
Notions: Stitch markers. Stuffing for your ornament will be provided in class.
Recommended for: Intermediate knitters. You should be comfortable knitting in the round and making basic increases and decreases.
