Fairisle Christmas Ornament with Katrina

Saturday, December 7, 9:30am-12:30pm (3 hours)

Learn the basics of stranded knitting while making an intricate looking Christmas ornament that is deceptively easy to knit! Whether you are new to stranded colourwork and want to start with a small project or have knit stranded colourwork before and want to enhance your skills, this class is for you.
In this class you will learn to read a colourwork chart, keep even float tension, and manage your dominant colour, all while knitting in the round. Join us to explore the fun of knitting stranded colourwork by creating your own two colour Christmas ornament.

Please bring to class: 3.5mm DPN needles, scissors, stitch markers and a darning needle. Bring needles made from a grippy material if you aren't used to using DPNs. Go down a size (3.25mm) if you are a loose knitter or up a size (3.75mm) of you are a tight knitter.

Prerequisites: Must be comfortable with knitting, purling, decreases, and working in the round.  

Cost: $50 (includes yarn)
