When art meets craft, your knitting gets more interesting and fun without much effort. Join us and learn the formula to add art to your stripes and stitch patterns by rearranging the colors you are already using.  During the first session participants will be able to create a fun, funky phone bag. In the second session, participants will learn how to make stunning shawls and scarves utilizing a different formula. Then apply the new skills to ease into adding your own art to your craft. 

First Session supplies: approximately 1.5 ounces total of two complementary colors of smooth sport or dk yarn. Leftovers from other projects are fine.  Appropriately sized needles, row counter, if desired, tape measure, tapestry needle, and scissors.  Bring a button or bead for closure, if desired. 

Second Session supplies: For the class sample, you will need approximately 200 yards of yarn. The yarn should be in four coordinating colors with similar weight and fiber content. Sport, DK and worsted are the best weights to use. Smooth or lightly textured yarns are preferred. You can combine different yarns as long as they will work together, but try to avoid heavily textured (novelty) or hairy (mohair) yarns. You do not need to have the exact amount of each color (for example: 50 yards of each yarn), but the amounts of the four yarns need to total 200 yards. 

If you want to continue and create an actual scarf you will need additional yardage, how much depends on how long you want the scarf to be.

Skill Level:

- appropriate for beginners, must be able to knit and purl with ease.

Instructor:   Lisa Louie

The RoundTable format.

Members will enter the meeting on mute.

The session will begin with a mini-lecture on the topic by the Instructor. 

We ask participants to mute their mic during this segment.

During the lecture segment, use the Chat function on Zoom to write down any questions that pop in your head. 

After the lecture segment, the Instructor will review the questions in the Chat and open the RoundTable to discussion by the participants. 

An Instructor may email a handout before class to define the discussion or suggest a “homework” to try out a technique that will be discussed during the RoundTable.

Please remember that a RoundTable is an academic discussion. We ask that all participants stay on topic and respect the opinions of other participants.

Zoom link will be sent in receipt for class registration.
