Learn how to use gauge, stitch pattern repeats, and desired measurements to design your own knitted cowl. We will play with design concepts such as charting a written stitch pattern and converting a flat stitch pattern to working in the round. Participants will choose an inspiring stitch pattern and take it from paper to a wearable accessory.
This class is for the adventurous knitter! Please be comfortable with knitting in the round and reading knitting patterns.

Choose a few stitch patterns from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns in Chapters 2-9, 11, or 12. If you have already purchased yarn for your cowl, consider how that yarn will work up in the stitch patterns you've selected. If you haven't bought your yarn, you may get the instructor's input at the first class.
