Christmas Stocking

When:
July 14, 2016 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join Gabriella on Thursdays, July 14, 21 & 28 from 2-4pm. $85 plus materials.

Create your own heirloom for yourself or a loved one! Customize your Christmas stocking by choosing one of 4 pattern variations: snowflake, tree, bird, or monogram on a background of simple stockinette stitch. You can even mix and match, or add a name at the top. A relatively quick knit in a worsted/bulky weight yarn–try Blue Sky Worsted Hand Dyes, SweetGeorgia Superwash Six, Cascade 128, or Jade Sapphire 8-Ply cashmere–you’ll want to make one for everyone. Cast on now so these special holiday treasures will be ready to hang in December! In this class, you will learn Judy’s Magic Cast On, heel shaping with German short rows, stranded two-color knitting, and an I-cord bind off.

Advance preparation may be required depending on the class topic.  Details will be provided one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, and extra help outside of class if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project.  If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
