Minion Hat

June 9, 2015 @ 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm

Join Mary Beth on Tuesday nights, June 9, 16 & 25 from 6-7:45pm. $75 plus materials.

The Minions are coming! Their movie opens on July 10th, so get everyone outfitted in style with the perfect hat! In this class, you’ll begin by learning how to knit in the round on circular and double-pointed needles (or magic loop or two circulars, if you’d prefer) and how to make a jogless stripe. The second class will teach the crochet stitches needed to create the eyes, and the third will cover the embroidery of the mouth and hair, and weaving in the ends. Sized for baby, child, or adult, and further scalable by your choice of yarn, there’s a Minion for everyone!  We have the perfect cartoon brights in Zara superwash merino (come see the sample!), or scale up in size with Jil Eaton Minnow Merino or Blue Sky Worsted Cotton. 20131108_091056_medium_medium

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.
