August is about Latvian braids and stranded colorwork!
The August in September hat features Latvian Braids which accentuate the 2 color stranded colorwork motifs. The hat is knit from the bottom up and uses a diminishing leaf pattern during the decreases. When your hat is done you will be able to show off the many new techniques you have learned. Two different colors of Germantown will enable you to knit 2 hats; reverse colors of each other.
Kelbourne Woolens Year of Hats
Kelbourne Woolens and River Colors want to help you expand your knitting skills by making a hat each month that introduces you to new skills and techniques. On the third Tuesday of each month, they release the new Year of Hats pattern for that month. Here at the studio, we will be working it up prior to class so that we can develop a curriculum for your class the following month. We love hats and think this is a groovy way to learn new skills and produce something wearable at the same time. Oh, and did we mention that each month that you participate and use Germantown yarn you will be given a free leather tag kit to sew onto your finished hat. Wait, a whole collection of hats that I made with collectors tags? Sign me up!
*Students will receive a 10% discount on class materials.
