Time: Tuesdays, March 12 & 26th from 5:30-7pm
Join our monthly Tuesday night hat club and become a master haberdasher! There is a hat for every head, and most hats can be modified to fit just the way you like, so take the plunge and whip up a toque, tam, beanie, or bonnet!
For March, our first hat will be the knitted February Hat from Kelbourne Woolens’ free Year of Hats series. It uses the delightful new all-American wool, Germantown, a worsted weight dyed-in-the-wool yarn. While any worsted weight yarn will work, we recommend a true solid color without heathering to make the textured stitches shine.
Bonus lesson in this class: how to make a perfect pompom!
