Leif Cowl with Ute

Join us to knit this beautiful cowl designed by Dianna Walla. You will work with two colors throughout, except the ribbings at the beginning and end of the cowl. We will learn how to deal with floats, color dominance, work from a chart and more. You have the options of two sizes.  The sample on display in the shop was knitted with Spincycle Dyed in the Wool yarn and is the shorter version.  Watching the colors shift and change as they interact with each other is almost hypnotic.  

The class is designed for you to learn or become more proficient in the stranded, aka fair isle knitting technique.
