Note: This is two-session class.
Time: Tuesdays, October 1 & 8 from 5-7 pm both days
Level: Advanced Beginner
Fidra is a quick and interesting one-size hat knit in bulky-weight yarn. Learn a new cast on (alternating long-tail and German twisted), how to read a knitting chart and, as a bonus, how to make the best pompoms. The first session will cover casting on and reading the chart, while the second will cover finishing and making a pompom. If you’re interested in joining the Autumn quarter knitalong for the Diamond Lake pullover (ask in the shop!) but aren’t comfortable reading charts, this is the class for you!
- Yarn: 2 skeins Malabrigo Chunky or 1 skein Brooklyn Tweed Quarry
- Needles: US 9 16-inch circular, US 10 16-inch circular and double-points. NOTE: If you are familiar with magic loop knitting you can use US 9 and 10 32-inch circulars (or interchangeables with a 32-inch cord). The instructor will NOT teach the magic loop method as part of this class.
