June is all about stripes!
June in July is a fun 2 color hat using slip stitch and 2 color yarn carrying techniques. You will find the rhythm of slipped knit stitches repeating at regular intervals break up the horizontally striped purl rows. With this design, there is enough yarn in two skeins of Kelbourne Woolens Germantown to make a second hat in the opposite colorway. A Kelbourne Woolens leather tag kit is free to class participants using the Germantown yarn.
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.
