Creative with Color Class


January 28, 2023; 9 am – noon

Adding color to your knitting is a great way to make a graphic statement, and there are lots of ways to do this by working only one color at a time (no stranding required!). I’ve put together some of my FAVORITE ways to play with colors one at a time, such as knitting ribbons and garlands, broken seed stitch, three-dimensional plaid, daisy stitches, slipped stitches, and more. These simple techniques will take your knitting to the next level with minimal effort, showing everyone you know how to be Clever with Color. Sign up here!!

Triangles are Anything but Square Class


January 28, 2023; 1-4 pm

One of the most versatile shawl shapes for both knitting and wearing is the triangular shawl, but who knew there could be so many ways to knit them?!

This class will explore many different options in triangular shawl design, such as side-to-side, top down, and asymmetrical on-the-bias. Within each of these basic construction methods, we will delve into a world of modifications that can customize an accessory to be everything you want. You will create tiny shawls to actively learn how to extend the wingspan, center an asymmetrical point, and create a flexible edge to allow for maximum blocking potential. Understanding the basics of shawl shaping will unlock a whole new world of knitting possibilities foryour needles! Sign up here!

Design Your Own Shawl Class


January 29, 2023; 10 am – 1 pm

This class will teach the basics of creating an asymmetric triangular shawl, with everything you need to cast-on. Students will learn how to make the numbers add up and how to track your yardage as you go. You’ll explore how to easily incorporate color and clever stitch patterns into a design that’s as unique as you are. We’ll start with a tiny swatch version, though fast knitters can quickly grow their shawls into gorgeous new designs! Sign up here!
