CLASSES
Mosaic Knitted Pouches
Wednesday, March 21st



Are you intrigued by color work but intimidated by the idea of having to manage two or more yarns across a row? Then mosaic knitting may be the thing to try. Mosaic knitting is an interesting technique where you will use multiple colors, but each row is worked with only one. The magic happens when you add slipped stitches. The end result is a dense sturdy fabric perfect for these pouches. This project is worked flat. The pattern gives you a choice of three sizes to make ranging from 3" x 3.75" to 5.5" x 5.75".
Day: Wednesday, March 21
Time: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Instructor: Margaret
Level: Intermediate or adventurous advanced beginner. Must know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
Material: Worsted weight yarn - either one skein color-changing yarn such as Noro Silk Garden OR one skein EACH of two contrasting colors
Size 6 needles and size 7 needles. These can be straight or circular, student's choice.

Pattern is available at http://versusmag.blogspot.com/2011/04/mosaic-knitted-pouches-tutorial-with.html please download your copy prior to class.
Box Drape Vest
Saturday, March 24th
Not only easy to make but an easy fit! The vest can be worn open or wrapped with a belt. The basket weave stitch makes for lovely reversible folds. The combination of boxes and a nice drape create a vest that anyone, no matter their size, can wear and look marvelous. If we can get Sandee to take it off, the vest will be on display in the shop. This vest was knitted by our own Sheila and she used Queensland Rustic Tweed.
This pattern was chosen from the book Swing Swagger Drape: Knit the Colors of Australia by Jane Slicer-Smith.
