The Winterlong Cowl is a warm, cozy bit of squishiness that employs some interesting techniques to create a flowing, organic shape. In this class, we’ll explore the techniques necessary to create it, and discuss the rhythms and patterns inherent to the design that make it so addictive to knit.
Students should be able to knit, purl and read charts or written pattern instructions.
Please bring 450 yards of heavy worsted weight or aran weight yarn and US 7 [4.5 mm] and US 8 [5 mm] needles, as well as smooth, non-wool waste yarn and crochet hook for provisional cast on.
