We’re very excited to have been given permission by Kate Davies to use her Peerie Flooers design in our fair-isle/stranded knitting hat class. Class will run for 3 consecutive Saturdays (November 23rd and 30th, December 7th) at the Gastown location, starting at 9:30am (1st class) and 10:00 am and each class will be between 1 hour and 1.5 hours depending on the content for the day.
The class fee of $120 includes the pattern and yarn (Rowan Fine Tweed) required to complete the hat. Please bring a 16″ circular needle in a 3mm size as well.
Class size is limited to 6 students, please contact us to register.
Basic-Intermediate knitting skills are required for this class.
The beautiful Zealana Air pattern book has arrived in store, along with new colours of this ultra soft, durable, and pill-resistant yarn that is lighter and warmer than 100% cashmere. AIR features 40% of down from the brushtail possum fiber, combined with 40% cashmere and 20% mulberry silk.
Just one ball is enough for the Leaf Panel Beret shown above, while the striped shawl shown below takes 2 balls each of 2 colours.
Drops Big Delight has arrived in the store and we’re excited to see this soft and feltable self-striping wool. As always, Drops has lots of free patterns available on their website, everything from 1 ball hats to stunning garments and afghans.
