Slipnot Cowl

Instructor - Carol Puntel

This cowl was designed by Elizabeth Elliott and is great for learning about Mosaic Knitting. Mosaic knitting is generally considered the easiest of colorwork techniques as you are only using one color at a time. The pattern is created by slipping stitches in an alternating set of two rows. The fabric is thicker than conventional stockinette. We will work this in the round for seamless finishing. An “extra” for learning in this project is the I-cord cast on and bind—off This lovely and neat start and end is the reason for 3 hours for this project.

Steek This Coffee Cup - {Part 2}

Instructor - Carol Puntel

The thought of cutting your knitting strikes fear in the hearts of many knitters. Knitting in the round with addition of a “steek” and then cutting is the best way to work stranded colorwork such as Fair Isle. Knitting in the round with two hands helps keep tension even when doing colorwork. To turn this “tube” into a sweater means cutting for sleeves, necks, and buttonbands (in the case of a cardigan). This coffee cozy is a small project in which you can learn both two handed colorwork and the steeking technique. It is divided into two sessions. Those who have already mastered two handed colorwork are welcome to come to only the second session where we cut and finish. The second session is 3 hours.

This is a two-part class. In session one, participants will learn two-handed colorwork. In session two, participants will learn the steeking technique. You can choose to take one part, or take both parts at a discounted rate.

Cost - (this date) $30

Cost - Both Classes $45

Two-at-a-Time (TAAT) Toe-up Socks Using Magic Loop {Part 2}

Instructor - Carol Puntel

If you have knitted socks before and would like to be able to make two at once this could be your chance.  If you have knitted socks before from the cuff down and would like to try toe up, this is also your chance.  If you have never used the Magic Loop method of circular knitting this is definitely your chance.
•  Knitting socks from the toe up can help with customizing fit.   This is also a great way to build in your gauge swatch.  Finally, it is a great way to be sure you balance the yarn properly to get the same length cuffs without running out.
•  Some folks suffer from “second sock syndrome”  You finish one sock and instead of wanting to do the next one, you want to try a new yarn, pattern, or size.  Off you go and suddenly you have a collection of single socks.  Knitting two at a time (TAAT) can resolve this.
•  Magic Loop is a method of knitting in the round using one long circular needle.  Many find this easier than manipulating dpns.
In this two- part class we will learn a special cast on and heel specifically designed for toe up.  We’ll learn how to do two socks at once. You will also learn how to apply the Magic Loop method to socks and other circular projects.

Students should have knitted at least one pair of socks and  have an understanding of basic sock construction and circular knitting.  This is NOT an introductory sock class.  This is a two-part class.  The first class is September 17th.

Cost - $35
