    Description:  Have you ever had the urge to just cast on but didn't have access to any patterns? Do you have that one beautiful orphan skein that doesn't seem to work well with any other pattern you've tried? Would an intriguing but mindless knit that can be taken anywhere with nothing in the bag but the yarn and needles be appealing to you? Let's create this go anywhere, one of a kind, project!

    By employing principles similar to those used by Mother Nature to generate life you will create your own continuing stitch pattern that does not need a written pattern or a chart to knit. In class we will focus on creating textured fabrics.

    Skill Level: Know how to cast on/bind off, knit/purl, increase/decrease

    Homework: None

    Tools Needed: Worsted weight yarn in two contrasting colors; needles sized appropriate to yarn weight; graph paper; pencil; eraser.
