Saturdays, Nov. 3rd, 10th, and 17th -
12:00 to 2:00PM

Join celebrated instructor Nancy Wynn for this Beyond the Basics experience. If you have ever looked at pattern you are dying to make and put it down because you didn't know the cast on, how to do a M1R, or were puzzled by yarnovers then here is your chance to learn and master all of the techniques and tricks every knitter must know.
A stylish combination of a cowl combined with a kerchief in a textured stitch pattern that looks much more complex than it really is. This scarf is knitted flat from the top down and fastens in the back with buttons and crocheted button loops. The top edge is self-faced for extra body, and the edges have a slip-stitch garter selvedge so the kerchief will lie nice and flat.

Class Fee: $68

Add sparkle to any occasion with this classic beaded accessory.  The scarf is knit with beads placed in a graduated fashion at both ends. It is reversible, displaying a different look on each side.
The yarn used in this image is Be Sweet Bamboo, which has a soft sheen and drapes wonderfully.

Techniques learned:
We will discuss bead sizes, stringing and bead knitting techniques and pre-string 6/0 TOHO seed beads before knitting the project. You will learn to knit them into position.
Students will learn the backwards loop cast on. Selvage edge stitches at the beginning and end of each row will also be used in this project.
Wet blocking will be demonstrated at the last class.
