Open-weave Cowl Knitting Class

Learn to knit an open-weave cowl!

A great way to get started using circular needles.

Saturday, November 21st, 10:30AM-12:30PM
at Clay Wood & Cotton, 149 Main St., Beacon

Cost: $40 + materials

This bulky neck warmer is made in the round with no seaming necessary. It is such a quick knit you could make one while on your way to the mountains for a Wintery adventure. The stitch pattern and bulky warmth make this a one of a kind piece you will want to wear all season long.

Materials needed:
60+ yds of bulky yarn
#17 or 19 circular needles
large crochet hook or darning needle for finishing

Jill's handspun yarn will be available at a discount; needles and pattern will be available for purchase.

Angel Dog, not sure if you need knitting experience. You may need to call the shop and ask. They will have a Knitting 101 class next month. :)
