Taught by Dagmar Plenk
Saturday, November 3, 20189:00 am – 4:00 pm ( lunch break included) $100 per student
For many knitters there comes a time when they desire to create their own designs and patterns rather than following those of other people. At the same time they may not wish to deal with the complexities of designing sweaters or other types of clothing that requires focused attention of measuring and counting. A solution to this dilemma is learning to create knit scarves and shawls by combining colors, textures, and stitches of various kinds into a completely personal and unique work of art. I will teach creating triangular or rectangular shawls of varying sizes.
- Yarns of different weight, colors, and textures. The more the better. Your yarn stash might be a good place to start looking. Go for variety, and think about what colors would look good together.
- Circular needles. Size will depend on the yarns you choose. It is safest to bring along different sizes.
- Stitch markers.
- Small scissors.
- Notebook and pen.
- Most importantly, bring along a spirit of adventure and a trust in your creative abilities.
