Weave & Knit Cowl

April 17, 2015 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join Kara on Fridays, April 17 & 24 from 12-3pm. $75 plus materials. Basic weaving and knitting skills required.

In this class you will learn to make a cowl using both weaving and knitting! One technique flows into the other in an uninterrupted circle. In the first week, we will set up the looms and start weaving; in the second, we will do the knitting and finishing. And your beautiful cowl will be ready in time for Mother’s Day! This design uses the same yarn for weaving (warp and weft) and knitting. We think it’s the perfect showcase for our specially-dyed, Compatto’s Beach in Baah Aspen (come see the sample!). Other lovely choices include ArtYarns Zara Hand-Dyed and Frog Tree Llambrosia. You may use your own loom (with 12.5 dpi reed) or one of ours.

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.
