Design Your Own Colorwork Hat with Tressa Weidenaar (Saturday, June 3)
WORKSHOP REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
This workshop will guide students through their first knitted hat design. Students will learn about selecting color, inspiration for creating a design, and how to make a chart to create their own hat. Students will review techniques for knitting with two colors. They should also have time to cast on their hats and begin knitting the designs they created.
Students should bring a main color yarn and small amounts of other yarn colors in the same weight. They should bring needles appropriate for the yarn weight they choose and any “notions” they would normally use for knitting a hat, such as scissors, stitch markers, tape measure, and tapestry needle. If they would like, students can work up a swatch of their main color ahead of time and come to the workshop with their gauge measurements to help expedite the design process.
Date & Time
Saturday, June 3rd from 9 am to 12 pm

None. If desired, students will have the opportunity to purchase a main color for their hat design directly through the instructor on the day of the workshop. Yarn will be available in fingering, DK or worsted weight.
