So, my friends, it is on again – The Craft Sessions 2014!
After the fantastic inaugural event last year
I was thrilled to be invited back again to teach two new classes.
I will teaching a half-day class to make a Sev[en]circle Neckpiece.
A sweet little knitted design that can be adapted and tweaked to suit you and your yarn.
Oh, and maybe learn a few handy knitting techniques, too.
I am busily knitting up some new samples to help whet your appetite
and get you thinking about how you might like to make yours.
I’m thinking sterling silver ‘add-ins’, a bracelet version, chunky 10ply/aran weights,
or perhaps skinny little loopy loops for a bright colour punch.
You might like to use handspun yarn, add in some beads, tie on some yarn ends.
Your imagination is really the only limit.
Take a look through the Ravelry Project Page for some more great inspiration.
My other class will be a full day session to make a Seamless Hat.
[Please note, the images are indicative only at this time.]
I am developing a new hat pattern specifically for this class:
to suit confident beginners through to intermediate knitters.
As with most of my knitwear patterns – there will be design options!
For those keen to learn the basic techniques; beautiful stocking stitch options.
For those wanting to take the design to the next level; a textured stitch pattern.
This new design includes a Provisional Cast On, knitting in the round,
decreasing to shape the crown and then an applied I-Cord Bind Off to the brim.
And the best part? You will finish your hat in the time alloted.
Yes – I’m aiming for a group photo at the end with our new hats on!
I am already loving my first 2 samples – really cute shape and neat fit.
Cannot wait to share them with you!
