Level 2: You can cast on, knit, purl, and bind off

Lace, stripes, and Spincycle yarn, oh my! Come and learn how to plan and create your very own Fireweed shawl, a two-color asymmetrical shawl featuring gorgeous Spincycle Yarns, with Seattle designer Cory Ellen! We’ll start by exploring how to use color theory, inspiring images, and personal style to choose colors that will make your heart sing! Then, in the hands-on section of class, we’ll knit Fireweed swatches to practice two-color stripe techniques, an easy way of picking up and knitting, and how to work and troubleshoot simple lace. As a handy reminder, each student will receive a handout with helpful terms, photo examples, and tips on how to approach color pairing in your yarns and projects. 

Instructor: Cory Ellen Boberg

Materials needed: Fireweed pattern; stitch markers; fingering weight yarn - 400 yards for Main Color; 200 yards for Contrast Color. (Bring yarn to class in the skein - we will talk about color choice during class, and you may want to update your colors afterwards!)
