If you can knit, purl and decrease, then you can learn how to decorate hats, cowls and gloves with fun, repeating patterns in contrasting colors!

In this two session class students will receive stranded knitting instruction, learn how to read a chart pattern, and I will explain and give visual examples of different types of color work. Students will receive additional motif patterns and video resources to inspire them to design their own projects.

Class will meet on Fridays, March 29 and April 5th at 10am-noon at the Richmond Art Center at 2540 Barrett Ave. Richmond, CA 94804.

Student will need the following materials for this class:

Homework:

Please cast on and knit the ribbing for your hat *BEFORE* coming to class so you can jump right into learning the technique. Use your darker color and circular needles to cast on 100 stitches. Knit 1.5″ of k2, p2 ribbing. If this ribbing is too large or small for the intended head, frog and cast on again, increasing or decreasing the number of stitches by a multiple of 4. Do not bind off.
