02/22 • FRACTAL COWL • Advanced Knitting, February 22 (11 am - 3 pm) Friday$60.00
A field of reverse stockinette stitch creates the perfect canvas for this unique cabled cowl. Inspired by the cutting-edge architecture of Australia, this chic scarf alternative is worked in the round (each one unique) to create sharp, geometric patterns and clear linear designs. It's a wonderful accessory that adds beautiful texture and warmth. We love this project because it's small (meaning it won't take forever to knit) and it has advanced techniques and stitches, which are always more fun to learn on a small project. This is an excellent intro to cabling and chart reading!
