New Classes at Yarn Garage!

Fast, Fun Classes for November and December!

The Inca Hat class is a two session class, Monday, November 21st & 28th from
10:30am - 12:30pm.  You will learn to make two earflaps at once, knit in the round, change yarn, and decrease.  Pick any worsted weight yarn for this hat.  We used Malabrigo Worsted because we liked the hand-dyed effect.  You could also use Dream in Color Classy, Manos Wool Clasica, or Araucania Toconao Multy.
You can make it in sports team colors or use angora and sequins to make it really girly.  $28 covers your two class session registration.  Click here for more information: Inca Hat Class

If you register for all three classes-Braided Headband, Holiday Bottle Cozy, and Rasta Scarf, you receive all the classes for only $42!  Come into the shop to receive this special pricing.

The Braided Headband class introduces a  new pattern.  Lori transformed our favorite cable into a headband!  This class will teach you how to create this deceptively easy cable!  With Lori's help you will master this technique in this single session two hour class.  If you don't want to make a headband, you can make a scarf with the same cable!
Lori used Spud & Chloe's Sweater yarn for the headband pictured above.  The pattern allows you to choose between three weights of yarn.  The sample on display at the Yarn Garage was made with Amy Butler's Sweet Harmony yarn.  I think Malabrigo Rios would be a divine option, or Schulana's Angora Fashion for a truly luxurious headband.  Add buttons for flair or weave hand-dyed silk ribbon through the cable.  Make it your own!  The pattern comes free with your $18 class registration!

The Holiday Bottle Cozy Class is a great hostess gift!  Wrap up your favorite wine, olive oil, sparkling cider in this knit bottle cozy for a original gift.
Lori will teach you the magic loop method so you don't have to use double points.    Use Plymouth Select Worsted Superwash Merino and add Angora for a furry trim!  Try Noro Silk Garden for a striped effect!  The pattern comes free with the $18 class registration.

The Rasta Scarf Class will teach you this fun 20 minute scarf!  You can make two or three in this single two hour class session.  

The original was made with Pagewood Farms Lana Grande.  We have also made it with Malabrigo Rasta, Cascade Magnum, and Twinkle Soft Chunky.  You can also add in some sequins, fur yarn, or beads!  This is a great last minute gift!  The pattern comes free with the $18 class registration.
