THE BIRD HAT
STRANDED KNITTING WORKSHOP
At The NeedleTree
In keeping with our small skills workshop theme….we are happy to announce our next stranding workshop!! The workshop will focus on stranded knitting, also referred to as Fair Isle. This advanced beginner class will use an elegant bird hat motif to get you comfortable with basic stranding. The hat is a beautiful knit and we did our sample in cashmere as we think this hat just wants a fiber as elegant as the design, but any fiber would be lovely!
For those experienced with stranded knitting in worsted and aran weight yarns – perhaps from our Whale Hat or Baa-able Hat classes – and looking for the next step, this class would be perfect, as the pattern uses fingering or light sport weight yarn and smaller needles. We will also review chart reading.
Catherine Paul will be teaching this workshop and the class materials include a Passerine Hat pattern, a summary of the skills, and Mom’s light refreshments!
