Can’t get enough of those delicious miniskeins (aka Minikins) by Freia? Here is another inspired way to show off the interplay of colors. The wave (or oscillating) pattern is created by a slipstitch method called Mosaic Knitting. It is much easier than stranded knitting (or Fair Isle) because only one color is used per round. The cowl will begin and end with a Latvian braid for very spiffy edges. The hat will start the same way, but we will spend an optional 3rd session learning to decrease in a way that keeps the pattern neat, and then to finish off the top. Perhaps a pompom?

 

Note: The kit used in this class (purchase separately here) contains enough yarn to make BOTH the hat and cowl.  The first two sessions of the class will focus on the cowl only.  The third session (optional) will be spent on learning how to decrease in pattern for the hat.  Please select the 2-session or 3-session class accordingly, and feel free to ask us any questions you might have!
