Turn A Square Hat Class (Knit One One)

Mittens and Hat Set

Happy New Year Everybody!!!

Well, my NY resolution to blog more regularly has been sideswiped by catching up at work, but, I will be sticking to one goal, making time to TEACH!!!

Sile of KnitOneOne fame has entrusted me with the minds of her students in leading a class on BrooklynTweed's "Turn-A-Square" hat. It's an elegant and efficient way to create a colorful hat out of leftover bits of commercial yarns and handspun (gather up your drop spindle skeins!). Techniques taught will be jogless stripes and raglan decreases without neutral stitches. I'll even show you a super quick way to do a pompom.

The class will be two 2-hr sessions on January 13th and 20th. More information can be found on the KnitOneOne site.

Hope to see you there!
