THE AUTUMN FUSION SHAWL (by Brigitte Elliott for Swing Knits)

This pattern might be 16 pages of instruction, but a perfect example of what my recommendation has always been.... start at the beginning, go step by step and trust in your pattern! This is not a difficult pattern to do, trust me.  I will guide you through to success and learn many skills on the way. Once you get going on this scarf, it is so hard to put down! It is recommended to come in before class day to have us help you in choosing the perfect yarn for YOUR unique creation! 

THE LUCY by Carina Spencer

Instructor:  Amy LaFave

$30 + materials

This is such a stylish hat pattern and quite simple for those that are wanting to go "beyond the scarf".  You will learn how to do short rows and tricks in having your weave stitch turn out perfectly in this fun class!  There is a little homework to have done before class day (cast on and 4 rounds of purl), so be sure to come pick out yarn and give yourself plenty of time to get your homework complete ;)  

We look forward to having you join us for one or all of our classes and as always, we offer a 10% discount on all class supplies, even the weaving looms!
