…you know, the one where you vowed to learn some new skills? How about learning the technique of double knitting? We still have a few spaces open in local designer Sara Bench’s Love is Actually All Around class, based on her gorgeous pattern published in Knitty.
Natural Stitches is offering a two part class. The class will run over two sessions, and will cover more than just the double knitting technique. At the first session, Sara will discuss the cast on and how double knitting is accomplished, and get students started on making the cowl. The second session will cover finishing and how to fix mistakes that you find – even those found much later.
The Love Actually Workshop will run on Sunday, March 10 and Sunday, March 24, both from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM. The cost of the class is $50 plus materials. Students should be familiar with knitting, purling, knitting in the round, reading charts, and grafting. Knowledge of Judy’s Magic Cast On and reading your knitting is a plus but not a requirement. Call the shop at 412.441.4410, or stop by, to sign up for this special workshop. Participants must register by Friday morning!
Would you like to see how the cowl looks on a person instead of on our shop counter? Customer Jen was kind enough to model for us.
