Knitted Birds with Arne & Carlos
October 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$100
We all deserve a flock of our own! Learn to knit a covey of feathered friends in this introductory class exploring the basic tenets of the knitted bird, a charming, quiet, and extraordinarily clean species comfortable in all manner of domesticated scenarios.
Scandinavian design superstars Arne & Carlos provide expert guidance for intermediate and advanced knitters with an interest in hatching their own handmade avian companions. You’ll learn the fundamental steps from beak to feet to tail, leaving you well prepared to spread your wings and explore the possibilities all on your own.
In addition, Arne & Carlos will teach you how to knit and purl the Norwegian (Continental) way. Plus, they’ll share their tips for the easiest method of tensioning yarn correctly to get even stitches and perfect gauge, whether knitting or purling. And you’ll learn how to read a chart, so you don’t have to rely on the written pattern! Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to learn the art of the knitted bird, as well as essential knitting techniques, from the very best in the business.
Space is limited! Call or stop by the shop to sign up.
