One Sweater KAL :: Saturday, February 1st ~ 10:30 – 12:00pm

Now that we have decided on the size, color and swatched for our pattern it’s time to cast-on. Are you having trouble figuring out the long tail tubular cast-on? Come into the shop and I will help you to get the edge this pattern suggests for the pretty neckline.

Are you interested in learning a bit of color work? The Chevron Cowl is the perfect first project ~ with only two colors, worsted weight and a free pattern, this will help get us through the last few months of an Iowa winter.
