Carina Spencer amazes with her spectacular Catkin design.  Last summer, you may remember, Joanna hosted a Catkin Knit Along.  Due to unbeliveable demand, she is now hosting a class.  She will show you how to read the charts and help you work your way through the slipped stitch catkin and leaf motif.  This is not two stranded knitting, it is instead a clever use of slipped stitches.  This is an intermediate to advanced class.


You must come to class with your swatch COMPLETED.  The swatchis done in pattern using both colors of yarn.  Joanna will discuss color choice at the first session and assist in any changes desired.

Prerequists:  Basic pattern reading skills needed.  Ability to knit, purl, cast on, and bind off.  Familiarity with standard increases a must.  You must be comfortable with knitting from a chart or willing to learn how to read a chart.  Ability to work with a slipped stitch pattern is necessary to be successful. Please discuss the pattern with our staff if you are concerned about taking this class.

Supplies:  Joanna suggests Tosh Merino Light for this project.

380 yards of fingering weight yarn for color
