Cubism Tote

September 9, 2014 @ 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm

Join Mary Beth on Tuesday nights, September 9, 23 & 30 from 6-7:45pm. $75 plus materials.

Originally designed for a cushion, this geometric pattern was taken up a notch by a clever Raveler and made into a tote. With this flexible design, you have your choice of yarns, depending on the size you want and if you want to felt it. The store sample is in Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed, a beautiful heathered yarn that’s great for felting. Another great choice is Rowan Big Wool, a thicker feltable yarn that will work up more quickly or make a bigger bag. If you’d prefer a lined, unfelted bag, you have your pick of the many other yarns in the shop! In this class, you’ll get instruction on working on the diagonal, picking up stitches, seaming and felting (and/or lining) the bag, and attaching handles.


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